Interesting Muni Cargo Report

Not sure about the purpose of this gentleman’s curious cargo, but I would really like to know.

More strange cargo seen on Muni Diaries, or see them all on our Strange Cargo Pinterest board!

  1. Magnajosha

    That’s a loom! You use it to spin carded fiber into thread. The thread can then be used to make yarn or to be woven into cloth… It usually has a carder attached or nearby (kinda like a dog brush) which is used to get any seeds/burrs out of the fiber. Common fibers I’ve seen it used for is cotton and wool.

  2. A Vuncular

    It’s a spinning wheel. The purpose has been described above.
    A loom is a frame for weaving thread into fabric by criss-crossing.
