"Reliable Rayon" at Museum Textile Services Blog
This lovely sample of wartime-era yarn was recently donated to the Museum Textile Services study collection by Mig Ticehurst of Keswick, Cumbria, England.
The company that made this yarn has gone by several names, but at the time, it was Robert Glew & Co, Ltd.
We love the slogan on the label of this yarn – “Reliable rayon for dainty garments.”
