These thread cards from France bear names of towns in Normandy, as a tribute to the history of this linen-producing region which was filled with linen mills in days gone by. In the past, linen thread was mainly sold on this type of cards.
The cards are of excellent quality, retracing the principals of cards of old, to make organising your threads a real pleasure. They are sold in series of six, printed on both sides on 2mm thick cardboard. Pattern widths are all approximately 6 cm.

All winder sets are shown below. Six winders in each set.
