This treasure box from the Lila series includes: 

An assortment of 60's linen threads, circa 140 meter

Just under 50 meter is Nordiska's own beautiful lace making linen, a smooth and even thread that is not so easy to find anymore. 

30 meter is fine HV thread, developed in the 1950's. This skein is more recent, perhaps from the late 1990's/2000's.

10 meter is 4-stranded hemstich yarn, 40 meter if stranded to one thread. 

Four skeins of regular linen embroidery thread, 1960's (Linblomman #907) and 1990's, all together 56 meter. 


A spool of machine silk, late 1800's
Hand dyed silk, contemporary

A hidden layer of vintage and contemporary cotton embroidery threads x 6 skeins
1940's quilt block with two chenille needles. The fabrics in the quilt blocks will very slightly from this picture, as all are different.
