The Nordiska Project Linen Thread Sets for Loop
Soft and very beautiful 100% linen threads.
The threads come in sets of 11 in a special edition Loop London box.
These lovely threads are Lyster linen, the same weight as the the vintage linen embroidery threads but they are not divisible. They are spun to be used as is.
Linen is a soft and strong thread and will still look beautiful years from now making it ideal for creating special heirloom pieces.
Each set has two kinds of Lyster linen threads
Lyster #1 is a soft, even, matte thread, closest to Knox's of Kilbirnie, a 1960's Scottish linen that was world leading in quality.
Lyster #2 is similar to the 1960's Linblomman or Nordiska’s own linen, slightly firmer, very lustrous and more fibrous than Lyster #1.
Each box contains both Lyster #1 and #2.
Use chenille needles 22 for linen embroidery thread.
