Please note that these come wrapped in a ribbon and not in a box.
Soft and very beautiful 100% linen threads made in Sweden . They are estimated to be from the 1940's to 1960's and are in perfect condition. The threads come wrapped together in a bundle tied with a ribbon.
This thread is called Hålsömsgarn nr 25/4, "hemstitch yarn" for openwork/drawn thread -embroidery, and is often found mentioned in 50's and 60's Swedish embroidery instructions. It's spun loosely so that it can be divided into 4 thinner strands. The fibres used for spinning this thread are very fine and the thread is smooth & even.
Each skein has approximately 10 metres of thread.
We sell these in bundles of 11 colours in two different colour ways.
A chalky colour version much like the colours of macarons and a bright box of blues, greens and yellows that we call 'Bright Earth'.
