COLOURED LINEN THREAD
This card has enough thread to restring two Pelham Puppets.
Coloured linen thread, unwaxed. 18/3. The brand is Barbour.
This is the same type of thread that was used for Pelham Puppets in the 1950's.
Coloured strings were introduced in mid 1950's.
The 18/3 is the thread count, so this has 3 threads (3 ply) twisted in a firm twist and then reversed to give a strong thread. This is much more authentic than the harsh nylon thread sometimes used for restringing.
Each piece of card has the correct quantities for your restringing.
If you only need Black, please choose the all black thread available.
An Instruction Leaflet is enclosed with a threading needle. Colours are Black, Blue, Red, Yellow and Green. The colours match well to original Pelham colours apart from the green which is only for opening mouth type puppets and is a dull green as shown.
You receive one piece of card with enough thread for 2 puppets, leaflet and needle. Thread is uncut.
If buying more than one piece, I will send one needle and one set of instructions, unless otherwise requested.
