Try using vintage silk embroidery thread for your next project, it may inspire you in a new way and give your project that "special something".
The breakdown from right to left is as follows - the two midnight blue rolls on the end seem to be older than the rest. I don't see any labels but they made be as old as the early 1900's. Next there is a skein of Richardson's silk, shade 1133 which is a very pretty shade of gray and may have been used. Next are two twists of Belding Brothers silk, each 10 yards, shade 1354, in a nice woodsy shade of brown, doesn't look like they were used. Beside it are 2 skeins of light brown, may have been used. Next are 2 skeins of dark forest green silk also by Belding Brothers, each 10 yards, shade 1323X, don't look used. Next is a lovely vibrant pale pink, made by J & P Coats, shade 414, 6 yards, doesn't look used. Last is also by J & P Coats, pastel yellow, shade 204 also 6 yards, doesn't look used. All are silk and just as usable and beautiful now as the day they were made.
