Found this card which looks hand printed.
"EXTRA STRONG WAXED THREAD..for MAKING AND REPAIRING BAGS, BOOTS and all LEATHER AND CANVAS GOODS.
90 INCHES/2 NEEDLES"
It reminded me a little of Trevira's blog.
The price label is still on because if I fetch it off it will rip the card..
And it cost a pound.
It came with the brown paper bag.
