Thread Wanted--Anchor Mercer Cordonnet Size 20

Even though I have enough thread to last probably 10-100 lifetimes, I am looking for colors of a specific kind of thread:

Anchor Mercer Cordonnet   Size 20

I have found that the  colors of this thread match in size....which is important in my Split Ring Tatting design work where I put different-colored motifs together in one piece.

I have found this thread at Tatting Corner ( and have bought many of the colors.  I have even ordered from England to get enough on one specific color that I can't get from Tatting Corner.  Plus I have a few balls of thread from the past when it was readily available (ca. early 90's---am I dating myself!?!)

What I am hoping for now is that someone has a stash of this thread that they are willing to part with.  I really love vibrant colors that contrast well with another.  I really am not interested in variegateds.

Contact me at:

I would be willing to purchase them or could put together a trade....maybe even two balls of mine for one ball of yours of a different brand.  (I have DMC, Flora, and Lizbeth, to name a few brands.)


  1. I did a google search and came up with this for you. Hope it helps!

  2. Yikes, I just realized that you left me a comment and a suggestion. Thanks. As soon as I send this I will explore your lead. Thanks.
