Wool-What is all this used for?

I Think this is wool, my guess is spools from a spinning weel? I bought one spool even though I was not sure

you can burn test to be sure... it looks like wool from a factory. You can knit/crochet it. If you need more thickness use 2 or 3 spools. There is a way to twist them together if you have a spindle/wheel and then wet & dry to set the twist. But you you don't have to do that.
If it is very rough feeling it is for weaving rugs. You can use it to make dryer balls if too scratchy for clothing.

Thanks for the help. Good advice about the dryer balls, i've wanted to try them.

The thinner ones are definitely bobbins for weaving. They fit inside a boat shuttle. The wider ones can be either bobbins for a spinning wheel or bobbins for winding a warp. I can't tell.
