Perfect for a Christmas general store vignette! Can't you just see it on a wooden shelf, in an old dough bowl, ...... Sitting on an old sewing machine or with other vintage or Christmas supplies, like a little nostalgic take me away moment.
This is a boatload of primitive charm! Two very large spools of yarn, in traditional Christmas red & green. This is a true Christmas green though in my photos it looks like a blue-green. It is not blue green! Wonderful to display in a bowl, on a shelf or on an old kitchen cabinet. So industrial & primitive country at the same time! And of course you could do needlework or fiber art with these. The red yarn is the oldest and it is very fine like a thick sewing thread. Inside the cone is a label from the Dixie Yarn, Inc. in Chattanooga. This label looks much older than the label on the green. It says size is 30/2 CPM and the color is listed as cherry. Since the green is dated 1993, I know the red is very vintage. I think it looks like it could be 70s or older. The green is thicker and newer, dated 1993 by Pharr Yarns, classic acrylic, Spicy Red is the color. It has a 2/24. On one side of the red is a small area of black (dirt?), only on a few thin strands. Don't think it will show in photos but if you want to see, convo me and I can try to take a photo outside. You really have to look for this.
Red yarn spool measures 4 1/4" across top, 7 1/4" tall, and 7 1/4" across bottom. Green spool measures 5 1/8" across the top, 7 1/4" tall, and 7 1/2" across bottom.
No odors & smoke free.

There are a few more numbers/letters on the labels inside the spools. If it would help to know them, convo me.
