SYLKO Wooden Cotton Reels

SYLKO Wooden Cotton Reels

Vintage SYLKO cotton thread reels: I have some new additions to my collection! I went to a car boot sale on Sunday, and was lucky enough to find a bag of 52 vintage wooden thread reels. 22 of the reels were wooden SYLKO reels of colours not yet in my collection, and all in good condition. One of the new reels is colour number 429 (‘Jadestone’), so it looks like I have a long way to go before I complete my collection! I use any doubles that I acquire to make up vintage style sewing kits, so they all find a good home.
