Here is a collection of our favourite threads,
all packed in a very beautiful mid century linen thread box from Nordiska of Gothenburg.
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 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.
One skein of Linblomman, a rare deep tealy green #867.
Four 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.
One skein of mid century soft cotton, Swedish or French.
Art silk, a skein and an antique card
A vintage darning thread card
Mouline embroidery thread, a skein.
A skein of Coton a Broder, mid century or earlier.
One antique Gutermann silk spool of 50 meter, the shades vary in each box as we did not have 4 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.
1940's quilt piece, these were noted feedsacks, and all patterns vary in each box.
A 25 x 25 cm piece of green linen
Antigue upholstery linen fragment
A piece of cotton fabric
Press studs from an old Danish haberdashery
A spool of variegated thread, source unknown. Vintage.
In total over 180 meter of our favourite threads.
The box will come gift wrapped in tissue paper and cotton bias.
