Initially the illustrious Laine Saint-Pierre darning wool was from Lyon. It was bought out by Maison Vrau in Lille in 1971. It belongs now to Ets Toulemonde, also owners of the Fil Au Chinois brand. The 1847 Collection marks a revival for this product: the cards and packaging were re-designed by Frédérique Crestin-Billet with their original look. The name is a reference to the year the brand Fil Au Chinois was registered New colours were dyed to offer a permanent range, notably for use in traditional embroidery and cross stitch.
