In a dream,a spool means keeping one’s secrets, or it could represent a gracious man, or a trustworthy person who lends his help to others and benefits them in their worldly affairs.
If one sees himself carrying a spool while taking his ritual ablution in a dream, it means that he will seek the help of a righteous believer who holds fast to the rope of God Almighty. In that sense, a spool represents the element of religious life and the rope in a dream signifies religion, which is one’s connection to his Lord. Carrying a spool when performing one’s ablution in a dream means that one will be permanently cured from ills and become free from debts.
A spool in a dream also means an active servant, or a talkative son. (Also see Ball of thread; Rope)
Dreams of a spool signify how tightly wound you are.
If you are wound tight, then this dream is telling you to let loose and relax.
If you are too loosely wound, then this dream is telling you to pull your act together and to tie up your loose ends.
