This listing is for one vintage spool of pure silk twist thread shade 8249, a beautiful shade of plum. Made by Belding Corticelli, this amazing thread is marked button & buttonhole, which is what it was primarily used for back in the day. Fabulous for hand stitching, embroidery, buttonholes, and believe it or not, fly tying. Has 10 yards of size D thread. Collectible spool measures 1" in diameter x 5/8" tall. Thread is new old stock probably dating back to the early 1930's. At the time of this listing I have 9 available in this color. Check and choose from the drop down box on the right. I also have 70+ spools in various colors in other listings. Check them out in the "Fabric & Crafting" section of my store. If you purchase more than 1 spool either here or in the other listings, I'll combine shipping and refund your account any shipping overcharges.
NOTE: THERE IS ONE SPOOL THAT ISN'T WRAPPED AS NICELY AS THE OTHERS. SEE 2ND PICTURE, BACK LONE SPOOL. IT APPEARS TO BE A FULL SPOOL, BUT I CAN'T BE SURE, SO IT'S THE LAST ONE THAT I'LL SELL. I THINK IT JUST CAME "UNWOUND" AND SOMEONE REWOUND IT.
