Bright hot colours! This listing is for a lot of 3 colours, 10 skeins each of vintage 1950s silk embroidery floss in gorgeous cerise pink, yellow and blue. The original shade numbers are 5453A, 5138, 5007A. The brand is Sete Cucirine Riunite, Milan.

Each skein measures 5 meters, so overall you will get 50m of each colour of exquisite vintage Italian pure silk thread. That is 150 metres of luxury!

The thread is washable. It is in perfect condition: strong, soft, with a beautiful sheen. The pieces of original wrapping are so lovely and delicate they can be used for a collage.

Perfect for embroidery, jewellery making, art dolls, art journals.

I have a few other colors please convo me to inquire.
