Our finest vintage and contemporary linen threads, silks and haberdashery all in beautiful complementary tones and colours.
Soft Pink Vintage Linen Box is a series of 10, all contain the following rare and beautiful threads:
2 x skeins of Nordiska lace threads, one of the most beautiful linen threads ever found. It was made in the 50's and 60's for lace making and embroidery.

1 x mid century Gutermann silk 50 meter each.
(The silk shades vary in each box)
1 x Linblomman linen hemstitch skein, 1960's. This thread is stranded and divides into 4 finer threads. In the old Nordiska kits, three strands were often used together with the regular embroidery thread, to create a more interesting texture.
1 x 30 meter HV linen, a very fine linen thread that has been made since the 1950's. This skein is more recent but the colour is identical to the 50's version.
1 x 30 meter of Swedish 60's lace making linen, beautiful for stitching delicate details.
