Item details

I recently came across a small but lovely selection of quality skeins of embroidery cotton threads.

These date back from the 1960s/1970s. In good condition, no fading of colors. Most are still tied in their original manufacturer's paper tags, both branded (mostly Clark&Co's Anchor) and unbranded. Have been priced accordingly

Very versatile thread, can be used for freestyle and counted thread embroidery, cross stitch, needlework, kids' crafts, etc ...

6 strand 100% long staple mercerised cotton embroidery thread on up to 8m skeins

1-4 strands use needle No.24
5 strands use needle No.22
6 strands use needle No.20

The listing is for 5 individual sets of 3 skeins each. The price is for a set of 3 skeins.

Note that the color names are my own interpretation, unless a manufacturer color reference number was stated on the skein. Please see the pictures for the color combos available. For ease of cross referencing, the pictures are in the order of the colors listed in the drop-down menu.
The drop-down menu reads as follows:
- beige: Anchor colors
- blue: Royal Blue, Dark Orange, Indian Red
- brown: Brown Bole, Indian Red, Vanilla
- orange: Dark Orange, Light Champagne Pink, Light Indian Red
- pink: Anchor colors 492, 736, 887

Just get creative now !

FAQs

All items have been lovingly cleaned before selling. Vintage and antique jewelry specially needs to be handled carefully. The best is to store each piece in an individual bag/pouch. Items in silver/silver plate will tarnish over time. Simply gently rub with a specialist silver cloth until shiny again. The best is to store them in an air-tight or anti-tarnish pouch.

Given that the items sold are antique / vintage, they are unique and most of them won't be fit for resizing. Please contact me if you have any question.
