For your consideration, this here is an unused spool of thread used in the manufacture of Vera Bradley products. The spool measures 4 1/2" tall x 2 1/2" across the top x 2 3/4" across the bottom. There is 5/8" of string around the spool (6000 yards). There is a sticker on the inside bottom of the spool that identifies it as "Soft Emerald" and made by Coats. "EPIC XTRA" is on the middle of the tag. It is still in its unopened plastic bag (there is a small hole in it, probably made to read the sticker).
