Flora & Fauna - 1960's embroidery linen yarn

Flora & Fauna - 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.

Two boxes available

Each box contains twenty skeins:
18 skeins are 16/2 art 20 and 14 m long (15.3 yd)
2 skeins (both dark green) are 25/4 art 25, which you can separate into 4 thinner strands. These skeins are 10 m long (10.9 yd)

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" (!)
