Here is a soft pink collection of our favourite threads,
all packed in a very beautiful mid century linen thread box from Swedish Marks.
The boxes were made between the 1940's and 1960's, all vary slightly and show signs of age. We have a small lot of these boxes left.
In this box you will find:
A soft pink #535 hemstitch linen skein from Nordiska. It's a stranded thread, a kind that has not been in production since the 1960's. It is 10 meter long, or 40 meter if used fully stranded.
Six contemporary linen skeins, Lyster #1 and #2. All of these are 14 meter per skein.
A skein of very beautiful quality variegated linen thread, 50+ meter. This thread is likely vintage, but have been dyed recently.
Two skeins of mouline embroidery thread, both 8 meter each.
One skein of vintage DMC nr 16, a 20 meter skein, made in France.
One antique Gutermann silk spool of 50 meter, the shades vary in each box as we did not have 8 of the same colour of this old beautiful pure silk thread.
Three chenille needles on a 1960's embroidery paper cut: size 20, 22 and 24.
Three pieces of Donegal tweed
Two 1940's quilt pieces, these were noted feedsacks, and all patterns vary in each box.
A 25 x 25 cm bird print, designed in 1960 by Nordiska of Gothenburg
There is no instructional card with this set, just use your favourite stitches to embroider the little bird.
In total over 180 meter of our favourite threads.
The box will come gift wrapped in tissue paper and cotton bias.
