Item details

Wonderful reel of Vintage Barbour's Irish linen thread.

These reels are quiet rare and hard to find these days, especially this colour of green. From my own collection, I wish to share these amazing threads with the world.

Each thread is no 18/3. This thread is approximately .75mm in thickness.

They are the best quality Irish linen Barbour's thread, and weigh approximately 250g.

These threads are not waxed, just glazed or satin finished.

The Barbour's stickers are present and they had the original glassine protective wrapper around the thread to protect from fading, dust and damage, but I had to dispose of them as they were very grubby.

The open roll is my own of which I use, you will receive one sealed roll.

3 cord reverse satin twist thread. Number 18 and super thick, it is perfect for saddlery, jewellery making, bookbinding and cobbling.


It will need to be aired, as it has been stored for a very long time and does have a whiff of long term storage.

The Barbour's advertising is my own from my private collection of Barbour's paraphernalia and is not included in the sale.

Barbour's mill in Lisburn, Northern Ireland is now long closed, but the footprint it left in the linen world will be that of the best linen thread makers in the world.

I am more than happy to combine postage where possible, but please be aware that once a package goes over the two kilo mark, the cost of posting is colossal. I will break parcels down if needs be.

I will always refund the difference in postal costs.
