There are 6 sets available of this treasure box, all with the same fourteen kinds of thread.  

One skein of contemporary linen, similar to Knox's of Kilbirnie.
Four shades including white in this skein of approximately 25 meter. 

Four skeins of Nordiska's own linen lace thread, made from the longest linen fibres, very smooth and beautiful. The thread is not easy to find, but we just had a small shipment arriving from an old haberdashery in northern Sweden. 
The sizes are: 35/2, 35/3, 40/3 and 60/3 in bleached and half bleached linen, almost 200 meter altogether. 

Linen thread 16/2, ca 1990's/2000's and contemporary, circa 40 meter.

One skein of vintage silk embroidery thread,
pre-cut in just under 1 meter length, circa 18 meter. 

A braid of 1960's strong and even fiber linen thread, ca 100 strands, circa one meter each. To use this thread just pull a strand from the top of the braid. 

One skein of Perle cotton

A skein of slubby vintage linen, Swedish

A spool of hand spun linen, ca 1960's.

A skein of natural fibre thread, possibly linen, ca 1950's

One hank of lovely Victorian embroidery thread, 16 meter. 

Swiss vintage linen, 20 m on card. 

A small hank of Barbour's antique very fine linen thread

One meter of mid century ribbon for embroidery, 5 cm wide

Art silk

All boxes vary a little in the printed text colour, but all 6 sets keep the same items and the same amount of threads. In each parcel is also a linen damask sample cloth from a Swedish linen factory, Dalsjöfors Fabriker. Printed on the linen are codes and information about the design, and a text which tells "Archive example. May not be sold". 
These are all different too, made between 1950 and 1967.
