Our finest vintage and contemporary linen threads, silks and haberdashery all in beautiful complementary tones and colours.
Greenery Vintage Linen Box is a series of 10, all contain the following rare and beautiful threads:
1 x skein 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
(The silk shades vary in each box)
6 x Nordiska linen hemstitch skeins, 1960's. This thread is stranded and divides into four finer threads. In the old Nordiska kits, three strands were often used together with the regular embroidery thread, to create interesting texture.
2 x skeins of 1960's Linblomman linen embroidery thread
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 14 meter of Swedish 60's lace making linen, very lustrous pale green.
1 x skein of 1960's Nordiska linen embroidery thread
1 x skein of natural dyed wool embroidery thread
1 x twisted skein of contemporary variegated linen embroidery thread, very fine and strong.
