Vintage linen carpet thread on original card

Shamrock No. 18 Linen Carpet Thread
by Wm Barbour Sons Ltd of Lisburn, Northern Ireland
Quite a sturdy, coarse thread in a mid-brown shade
On original card. Appears to be unused
Difficult to date precisely. Probably dates from the 1930s or thereabouts
Dimensions of card: approx. 2" x 3 3/4" (approx. 5.5cm x 9.5cm)

Originally intended for mending/darning/restoring vintage rugs but could also be used for a variety of needlework/craft purposes. Would also look great on display!

In good condition. Appears to be unused. Card is also in good condition with just a little age discolouration/scuffing

Any questions, please feel free to ask
