An English bolster pillow with a light blue cover. It has a pattern in progress of Yak lace using Yorkshire woolen thread. It is unusual to find a pattern in progress with all the bobbins, often the bobbins are cut off for separate sale. The bobbins are larger than the usual Midlands spangled type. This pillow is also shown in the English Equipment section as Bolster_1
