Vintage Metallic Thread

Another interesting vintage find was this spool of non-tarnishing, washable metallic thread. It’s not been opened yet & should be interesting to work with – eventually when I figure out what to do with it! The thread itself looks flat like ribbon.

On the internet, I found a catalog from 1937 & one from the early 60’s in which they advertise, “For more than 40 years the knitters favorite.”  So, the time frame would be my grandmothers.
