B.C.H. Thread Cards
These cards of silky, three-strand cotton thread are a fantastic find! The thread was discovered in a haberdashery warehouse in England, having been forgotten for decades. I received the thread cards still in their original boxes! The cards are marked: "B.C.H." & "GEM. SPLITGAREN". The country of origin is not labeled, but I suspect the Netherlands as "splitgaren" is Dutch for floss, or literally split yarn.
The thread cards are offered in 5 variations:
- Browns -- Chestnut, Ash, Camel
- Wines -- Burgundy, Rose, Merlot
- Naval -- Gray, Navy Blue, Red
- Blues -- Prussian, Gray, Navy
- All Four Sets -- 12 cards total
The thread is considered old new stock, and is unused. Some of the cards have modest discolorations that are typical of something this age.
Dimensions: Cards are 4.25" or 10.5 cm tall
