This listing is for a vintage spool of Belding-Corticelli brand pure silk sewing thread in a gorgeous, plum purple or eggplant color. The spool is a full 100 yards and is a very fine size A. The spool originally cost .35 cents.
This type of silk was originally sold as fine, hand sewing silk. I like to use it for embroidery and embellishment. Just really beautiful stuff and the color is amazing.
I have unwrapped the silk down several layers to be certain that it is strong and in perfect condition.
This spool has the original color number: 8570
My pictures show both ends of the spool, the thread in closeup and a darling ad from the time. My pictures are taken in natural light, which lessens the natural sheen of the threads.

I will be listing many more spools of silk from this time period, so do check back often. Listing each one separately is time consuming, but I would rather you choose the colors that you want rather than my choosing them for you by grouping.
