PASTEL Mini #4- The Flax Flower 1960's linen embroidery yarn

Pastel Mini #4
84 metre / 6 skeins:

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 is ideal for heirloom stitching.

Each skein is 15.9 yd / 14m and still in the original wrapping from the 60's.

The beautiful blue tone of thread is differently spun, probably intended for lace making. You can separate this thread into three fine threads. The pale mint skein was made by Nordic Industries, most likely 1940's but it may be older. 

If you order 20 skeins at the same time, we'll include a Linblomman /Flax Flower paper box. 
Please note the order of 20 has to be in the same shipment, but you can mix and match with silk,
 hemstitch linen or any other single skeins. 
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" (!)
