Flora & Fauna - The Flax Flower #16 - 1960's embroidery linen yarn

This wonderful 100% flax linen yarn was grown and spun in one of the main textile industrial areas of Sweden, in the 1960's. It is a fine and strong thread with a beautiful lustre, and was used in all embroidery;  monograms, household linen decorations, modern textile artwork etc. You can use this soft flaxen thread in any needlework project, and as it will still look beautiful a hundred years from now, it's ideal for heirloom stitching.

Three boxes available

Each box contains twenty, 15.9 yd (14m) skeins,
55 gram fibre / 306 yd 6ft / 280 meter in total.

Most of the linen are from the brand Linblomman, and some are from the same era, with the same colour coding (which means same 1960's dye-works) but labelled Linda or Kulört Lingarn, by Marks & Nordiska. The quality and length of skeins are the same. 

The boxes, white with pale blue/dark blue illustrations of flowering flax, are printed with the text "Bästa lingarn för broderi" which means "The best linen yarn for embroidery" (!)
The lid may be white as in the photo, or light blue, or yellow. The blue and yellow are the most rare boxes.
