Item details

Sheffield Steel is considered to be one of the best in the industry, hardened then tempered for best flexibility, which is exactly what a hand-sewer needs. The front of the needle packet says, "Time the Test trademark, Reg US Pat Off". Underneath it says, "English Lighthouse brand 20 needles Sharps 5/10". On the back, "Time the Test trademark Reg US Pat Off, Made and warranted by Morris & Yeomans Ltd, Astwood Bank, Redditch, England". Inside it reads, "English needles manufactured from best Sheffield Steel". Inside there are 4 needles remaining. The paper package is 2 1/4 inches long. The 3 vintage wooden spools of Coats & Clark's mercerized sewing thread in aqua, purple and burnt orange are from around the same time period. The 2 smaller spools have both top and bottom labels; the larger one has only the top, and does not have as much thread on it as the other two. As a note of interest - the mercerizing process was introduced mid-1800s to add an element of shrink resistance to the thread, as well as to make it mildew resistant, better able to more readily accept dye, and to give it a softer feel. These 4 small items make a big impact.
