Two unused balls of Twilleys No1 Health Vest Cotton. Each contains 200 yards/183 metres of yarn. Labelled as “bleached white knitting cotton for string health vests as recommended by the Medical Profession”!
The label goes on to say “this is the type of Vest that was used by members of the Everest Expedition and by our troops in Korea” - so just ideal for making yourself a vest for our chilly winter!
Having sat around for about 50 years the cotton is slightly discoloured in places but would hopefully wash well.
