Seeking Helene

Recently someone asked the ANG email list about a thread called Helene. I'd never heard of it, but Mary Jo says It is "a Rainbow Gallery Thread with the full name Backgrounds Helene -- a single ply 100% silk thread made in Switzerland. It is available in white and black on 20 yard cards."

It is possible the white is more of an ivory color...

...but on the color card it looks white.

Terry Dryden sells it in her Etsy store.

So does Stitcher's Paradise (look under Backgrounds).

Needle in a Haystack has all the Backgrounds threads from Rainbow Gallery although they are a special order.  They are not in stock, in other words.

Interesting question!  I never knew that Rainbow Gallery had a line of threads (including Helene) intended for backgrounds.
