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

Vintage and contemporary cotton embroidery threads
A vintage card made for darning thread, now wound with 1970's linen thread.
