The Le-Sure Company is no longer in business; these are antique braiding aids. Although they haven't been used, they cannot be considered "brand new" and do show some wear. These are used for 1/2" wide cotton fabric or other lighter weight fabric. These won't work with wool fabric - wool is too thick to push into these small aids. If you have trouble turning your strips inward when braiding, these braid aids will help in making those fabric tubes!
