Antique Handspun Cotton Thread

Regular price $85.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

This beautiful old Japanese cotton thread was sold to me as 'Edo Period' which is 1600-1868. I think it's safe to say 19th century at least. They've been hand spun on small spindles and the resulting  skeins (?) have been threaded together.  These are beautiful antique examples for spinners and weavers or other textile collectors.  The thread isn't strong but would also be something very special and authentic to add to a boro inspired piece. 

Price includes GST and  regular postage within Australia
