- As far as I know, "will boil" means it won't shrink. But if I were you I wouldn't dare sell old thread for sewing. I think the collector idea is a good one. I've often seen old wooden spools in antique&collectibe shops.

It seems the more I discover about my new shop the more

We had a bunch of old fabric and old thread donated years ago.
The thread is Star Mercerized cotton. The lable says "Will Boil." I
started to search around to see what that meant. Does anyone
know what that means? In my wanderings I discovered that the
thread is "vintage." Does that mean I should try selling it off to
collectors and not sew with it? We've got boxes and boxes of the
stuff. If it will raise more money as a collectors item that will
surely save my budget!!!!! Does anyone know if it is worth
something,and if it is, where should go from there?

- Hi Loretta..basically "will boil" means it's colorfast and it is vintage.
Dates back to when clothes were boiled to clean and sanitize them. You've
got quite a find and probably would benefit from selling it off if in fact
it is still sound enuf to use(~;
