Pastel Purple Blue #1 The Flax Flower 1960's embroidery linen yarn


7 skeins of vintage linen embroidery thread, 14 m per skein. One set only

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. Each set contains ten 15.9 yd (14m) skeins. Some 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.
