B.C.H. Thread Cards

from 4.25

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
