477

Post by narcodog » Mon Mar 29, 2021 7:06 pm

Those of you know me know I will search the world and wait for material that is hard to come by materialize . Last night after waiting about 15 years I have scored a card of 477 at a very reasonable price.

Nice score! So, seeing how it's almost impossible to find, do you plan to use it or save it?

Your persistence sure paid off! This card was in among a group of Chadwick’s wool yarns. I saw it in the picture; it wasn’t mentioned in the listing.

Congratulations Bob. ;) :D

I felt the same way when I finally got my hands on an old tube of Wonderwax.

So what do you guys think the price tag would be for a sweater that was knitted with 477 ?

Well, it was darning thread for British uniforms, so if there ever was one made it would be pretty pricey.

In all likely I will not tye anything with it. I purchased lengths of 477 in the past that I use when the notion hits me to tye a killer bug.
