W & J Knox thread mills started in the 1700's, manufacturing exquisite embroidery & lace making thread out of flax fibre for over 200 years. The Knox's of Kilbirnie were world leading in linen thread production. This particular lot of 70+ colours came from a Swedish ecclesiastical workshop where exclusive textiles were embroidered for churches all over Europe, mostly around the 1960's. The linen thread here is in perfect condition: bright, lustrous and made to last. Each skein is 18-20 meter long and the paper label is marked "Linen Floss Embroidery Thread" or "Linen Needlework Art Thread".
The stock is very limited with only 3-40 skeins per colour.
Orders of 20 will be packed in original W & J Knox boxes, beautiful paper boxes with typography typical of the 1920's - 1940's.
