Thread - Hemp - Vintage Kimono - Embroider - Embellish - Decorate - Cranberry Red
This is a beautiful rare hemp thread, which is not marketed, used in kimono and other textile production by a highly regarded textile company in Japan. These are new (old) threads, from the early Showa period. I also have listings of Real Gold, Silver and Urushi thread.
These are vintage thread, old stock, unused. Approx. 300 yards.
This is a beautiful shade of cranberry red. This is the spool on the left. This listing is for one spool of Cranberry only.
The other photos show other colors available. I wanted to show it against other colors, so you can tell the color.
Hemp is very strong, not as soft as linen. It is impervious to effects of salt water, and produces a
This is for ONE spool of thread.
This could be used in spinning, as a base thread, or sewing, embellishment, embroidery.
This is fine thread, about the same dimension as regular sewing thread (50).
I have more than a dozen linen and silk threads, not including Urushi, real gold and silver threads.
I also have some wonderful thick silk thread, used for Obi, in a limited range of colors. This again is not marketed. A special thread!

Shipping & policies
I ship only once weekly, typically either Friday or Saturday. Please convo me if you require something shipped by a due date. Thanks for your understanding!
I normally use USPS. IF YOU REQUIRE SPECIAL SHIPPING - EXPEDITED, please let me know PRIOR to your purchase. I will update the shipping cost for you. I sometimes charge a small handling fee for packaging, and for international shipping, as I must travel to a post office further away.
I recycle packaging whenever possible!
If you are interested in scrapbook shipping, consider adding pages. The envelope and padding make the first page more expensive, but additional pages bring down the cost for you.
I can ship First Class to France (and probably most of Europe) for one small textile item for about $7.50. More than that and the price does go up quite a lot, due to new postal regulations and ever increasing rate hikes.
Because of shipping increases, my minimum shipping fee will be $3.00 for any item. This does not include the packaging. Canadian minimum shipping is $5.50.
Due to the high postal rates, all books or printed materials will now be sent via media mail. I have increased shipping charges on some recently listed books. Please allow for extra delivery time for all printed materials! Thank you for your understanding!
If my shipping estimate for items is over by more than $1, I will refund the difference! I do add a small handling fee to cover envelopes or other shipping materials, labels, and travel to the city post office especially for international mail, which can not be processed at our tiny substation.
Consider insurance for items over $50. Required for $100 or over. Delivery confirmation or certified mail is $5.00. (I refund anything over actual cost.) I ship all items over $99 with certified mail, the cost of which is included in the shipping/handling at listing.
