Silk Sewing Thread

The Year 14 has been full of ups and downs thus far so I have been thrown rather off schedule in this blog. There are historic wips aplenty in the wings – I just need time to work on them.

In the meantime, I was recently given these beautiful vintage silk treads by a friend.

They probably date from around the mid-20th century and are American. They bear the name Belding Corticelli and the original price of each was 75 cents. One has never been used and I doubt I will use them, preferring to keep them as pet thread. They are certainly exquisitely smooth enough to stroke, and I love the colours.
