History behind the nameThe linen industry was the first in Belfast to become mechanised during our industrial revolution in the 1820s.
A bobbin is a spindle or cylinder on which yarn or thread is wound. Bobbins were also used on a larger scale in other industries such as ropemaking.
The bobbin was a lowly but essential part of this industry, produced in their tens of thousands, and used in all looms.
