This listing is for one (1) skein of a vintage French, metallic thread in a gorgeous silver from the early 1930's. This is so lovely and amazing to work with*. Each skein contains 7 meters and has a lovely patina, which only get's richer with time. In perfect vintage condition!
My pictures show the floss in it's original box, the bundles that this thread comes in, the 7 meter skein that you will receive and the 3 different colors of this thread that we have available. I have also used this thread for adding to 'hand fasting' cords for a bit of sparkle! Lovely for embellishment!
This listing is for silver. We have a pale blue and violet also.
* Tips for hand embroidery with metallic thread. Use a larger needle than you need to make a slightly larger hole in your fabric, which allows the thread to pull through easily. Use shorter lengths (I like 10" max) to prevent twisting and bending. A needle with a larger eye is also helpful as is a needle threader. I don't recommend "Thread Heaven" for metallic threads because it seems to dull the shine.
