vintageGutermannsilk700this is the last bit of Gütermann silk  col. 700 (circa 1970’s)
wonderfully smooth and strong, it’s so good for stitching lace into all the holes of Old Man Crow’s very good old jacket
I have looked online & found a few reels for sale here and there but none in this beautiful grey colour
any clues anyone ?

    There’s some spools of the 701 mid-grey, also the 38 silver at this site: http://www.baytailorsupply.com/gutermann-r-753-buttonhole-twist-400m/

    I have a bit of 604 that you’re welcome to, it may be too light for you?

      (((Cindy))) ’tis done, ordered a 400m reel of the 700 from Bay Tailor Supply, hopefully it will be as beautiful to work with as the vintage!
