Vintage Silk Embroidery Thread - A Dozen Skeins - Seda Filoflosse
- Product Code: FI-FILO
- Availability: 18
Beautiful, vintage ivory colored silk embroidery floss. Each bundle contains one dozen skeins and each skein is 4 meters long (just over 4 yards). That’s over 48 yards of 6 strand floss per bundle! Please note each skein is knotted near one end, as can be seen in the photos. The knots are tight but can be undone with patience if you work a sturdy needle into the center of the knot and diligently wiggle it around.
The silk has a beautiful sheen and the labels are lovely. Printed in Spanish, they contain washing instructions that translate loosely to:
"In a lot of water, not very hot, with good soap, add a little coarse salt. Dry immediately. Avoid soda. Rinse promptly and drain well."
Also found on the label wrapped around the bundle is: SEDA FILOFLOSSE, lavable (washable), Art. 9, La Religiosa, 12 Madejas de 4 Metros, Seda natural, Fabricacion Francesca. Each skein is labeled with the number 201, probably associated with the color. The bundles can be separated into individual 4 meter skeins, each with its own paper label. Wouldn't they make lovely gifts for your stitching friends?
You get one bundle of 12 skeins, as shown.
