There is a slight picot edge trim.It was made for the Milliner's Supply Company which operated out of Texas for over 50 years.There are 8 1/2 yards on the spool, with the original paper. Purchase all 8 1/2 yards and you get the cardboard center but there are no the labels.If you want to purchase more than one yard, convo me for a better price!!This is from a smoke free home.
