  lak khon

 

Thailand

A lak khon is a rectangular apparatus consisting of a wooden frame of about 2 meters by 5 to 8 meters, with on either side about 20 or more aligned pins of 10-15 centimeters each.

 

It is used to wind long threads of yarn, in order to make them into the right size for looming. In the background stands a rahng khon (fig.).
