Treasure box #15 from the Rosa series includes: 

Two long skeins of very rare Nordiska lace making linen thread, smooth and even made with the longest flax fibres. We believe this linen was grown in Belgium, retted in the river Lys and spun nearby. It was most likely dyed in Sweden.
This thread is not so easily found anymore. 

Each of these skeins are just under 50 meter long, so you will get near a 100 meter in this one box. 

The other skeins are: 
Linen embroidery thread from Nordiska, 1960's, 14 meter
Hemstitch yarn, 4-stranded linen, 10 meter (or 40 meter if used at its thinnest)

HV-thread, very fine embroidery linen developed in the 1950's. This skein is from 1990/2000's, with few slubs. Circa 30 meter. 

In total over 150 meter of beautiful linen thread for needlework,
There is also a skein of weaving linen, dyed in Sweden the 1930's. We found labels with the dye recipes among this thread, it's very fine and can be used for slow stitching and more, but it was made for weaving and it's not as strong as the regular embroidery linen.
 There are hundreds of threads pre-cut into 1m lengths (or longer)

the boxes were marked "Silver Medal Paris, 1878"
