That does look like the cardboard roll from a Barbours one pound spool. I do not think that I would measure the thread I have used over the years by the yard. I think that miles would be more accurate. I really do not know how many one pound spools I have used in the past 60 years but it would put a kite in danger of being hit by high flying commercial air liners. In recent years I have passed on hand sewing unless there is no other way to do it. When hand stitching I used 7 cord linen almost exclusively but now use 277 nylon with a Tippmann stitcher. I like the heavier threads. ---Sandy---
