This treasure box from the red thread series includes: 

An assortment of 60's linen threads, over 150 meter

55 meter are contemporary linen threads in 4 shades from bright red to dark red.
Just under 50 meter is Nordiska's own beautiful lace making linen, a smooth and even very rare thread that we just had shipped from a closed haberdashery. 
30 meter is fine HV thread, developed in the 1950's. This skein is more recent, perhaps around the 1990's/2000.
