One skein of Linblomman linen embroidery thread, 15.9 yd (14m). 
(The picture shows 12 skeins)

This wonderful 100% flax linen yarn was grown and spun in one of the main textile industrial areas of Sweden, in the 1960's. It is a fine and strong thread with a beautiful lustre, and was used in all embroidery;  monograms, household linen decorations, modern textile artwork etc. You can use this soft flaxen thread in any needlework project, and as it will still look beautiful a hundred years from now, it is ideal for heirloom stitching.


For orders of 20 we pack these skeins in their original boxes, 
you can mix and match with any single skeins, for example the Pastel mini sets, any silk skeins or the hemstitch yarn. The boxes, white with pale blue/dark blue illustrations of flowering flax, are printed with the text "Bästa lingarn för broderi" which means "The best linen yarn for embroidery" (!)
