It does not happen often, but here we have reds again!

This treasure box (one only) includes: 

An assortment of linen threads from the 1960's
Neon red Linblomman #858
Nordiska and a more recent brand of red linen, both out of production for many years and still as new. 

Four skeins of contemporary red linen, all different reds. 

A long skein of very rare Nordiska red linen lace thread, the most beautiful red, even and smooth linen thread. 

A larger silk spool from the late 1800's
Vintage Gutermann silk

Fine wool and cotton embroidery threads. 
A small selection of very fine red weaving linen, dyed in the 1930's

Antique cloth fragment, an embroidered pig. I bought this from an American quilt collector at Pour l'Amour du Fil in Nantes a few years ago, but have forgotten the collector's name now. 

Vintage and contemporary cotton embroidery threads

A vintage card made for darning thread, now wound with 1970's linen thread. 

A light cotton thread made decades ago in Sweden, very fine. The price note is included. 

A thread winding card with an image from the Nordiska Archive

An antique card with art silk, variegated

Two skeins of Coton a Broder, DMC, from around the 1950's or 60's. 

Lucite buttons from an old Copenhagen haberdashery

Chenille needles on a vintage paper cut. 

Swedish and French old fabric remnants, cotton. 

A sturdy paper box, gift wrapped.
