I YARN HOLDER Filed June '7, 1941 Inventor jamamziflizdemarz.
A tlomy Patented June 23, 1942 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE YARN HOLDER Barbara R. Anderson, Los Angeles, Calif.
Application June '7, 1941, Serial No. 397,109
The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in holders for yarn and upon which the yarn may be wound for renewing the yarn by subjecting the same to steam so as to straighten the yarn that has been reclaimed from,
garments or other articles.
An important object of the present invention is to provide a yarn holder of the character described designed primarily for home use and by means of which yarn may be reclaimed from garments and other articles and wound upon the holder, after which the yarn, while in position on the holder, is placed over a kettle of hot water so that the steam may penetrate the yarn thus straightening the same and placing the yarn in condition for future use.
A further object is to provide a yarn holder of this character of simple and practical construction, which is eflicient and reliable in performance, relatively inexpensive to manufacture, and otherwise well adapted for the purposes for which the same is intended.
Other objects and advantages reside in the details of construction as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawing forming part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:
Figure l is a front elevational view, and
Figure 2 is an edge elevational view.
Referring now to the drawing in detail, wherein for the purposes of illustration I have disclosed a preferred embodiment of the invention, the numeral 5 designates a flat rigid plate, preferably constructed of light weight metal and having openings 6 formed therein through which the steam may penetrate for contacting the yarn when wrapped on the holder.
The plate 5 is preferably of substantially rectangular form and having hook-like members I projecting laterally outwardly at each corner of the plate and curved in a direction toward the opposite end of the holder. The longitudinal edges of the plate are formed with scallops 8 to produce a substantially waving edge and within the recesses or valleys of which the yarn may be wound to secure the same in a predetermined position on the holder. Preferably, when winding the yarn on the holder, the yarn is extended in a diagonal direction about both sides of the plate, the hooks I preventing the Slipping of the yarn over the end of the plate.
At one end of the plate is a handle 9 which extends longitudinally and at the other end of the plate is a longtiudinal extending member 10 having a lug ll projecting at right angles to the extension I0 and having an opening therein for receiving the stem I2 of a clamp member 13 by means of which the holder may be attached to a suitable supporting structure. The lower end of the stem I2 is formed with a head Hi to prevent removal of the stem from the holder and to provide a swivel connection between the clamp and the holder.
After the yarn has been wound in the holder in the manner indicated the holder may be placed over a vessel of hot water so as to subject the yarn to the influence of steam to serve in straightening the yarn in order that the same may be reclaimed and again used in making garments or other articles.
It is believed the details of construction, advantages and manner of use of the device will be readily understood from the foregoing without further detailed explanation.
Having thus described the invention, what I claim is:
A yarn holder comprising a substantially rectangular perforated plate having hook-like lateral extensions at the corners thereof, the longitudinal edges of said plate between said lateral extensions being scalloped, a handle extending from one end of the plate, a member extending fromthe other end of the plate having a bentover lug extending at right angles to said plate, and a clamp means swivelled in said lug.
