Our finest vintage and contemporary linen threads, silk spools and haberdashery all in soft complementary colours.
Strawberry Linen & Silk Box is a series of 6, all boxes contain the following beautiful threads:
2 x 30 meter of a very fine linen thread for embroidery. This thread is becoming one of our most loved embroidery threads and we love to share these. In the box you will receive one clear and one softer dark red.
6 x skeins of our contemporary linen threads, 14 meter each. One of the reds is a heavier linen that was a production (lucky) accident from a few years ago,
we only have a little left in stock, a favourite!
1 x skein of 1960's Nordiska linen embroidery thread, 14 meter. A rare soft red #229.
2 x mid century Gutermann silk 50 meter each.
(The silk shades vary slightly in each box)
2 x skeins of Danish flower thread, a fine soft cotton that has been in production for over a century.
1 x Coton a Broder, 20 meter, mid century or earlier.
In the sturdy A6 paper box you will also find chenille needles in three sizes,
a notecard with envelope. We will also add a thread card with linen thread; the linen is contemporary, the card is a vintage card that originally held synthetic thread. We love the card for the design and used a 90 year old machine to wind the linen onto the old card.
