Heirloom Stitching threads-Sources

I was reading an article in an 1994 copy of McCall's Needlework titled Heirloom Stitching Threads. Seems there is a never ending search for materials that can be used in heirloom needlework projects. Here are some of the companies that were mentioned that are still in business and are on the Internet.
Kreinik Manufacturing. Silk and metallic thread
YLI Lovely quality threads and ribbons in cotton and silk
The Caron Collection The CARON Collection's threads range from exquisite hand-dyed variegated threads in cotton, silk and wool-silk to exotic metallics and shimmering nylon. With a palette of colors that rival nature in depth and subtlety and a dazzling range of texture, the CARON Collection's threads have become a favorite of designers everywhere.
Ginnie Thompson Flower Thread
  • 20 count cream Irish Linen also offered
Anchor- now sold under Coats and Clark
I am still looking for linen crochet threads. There was a product from Anchor called Artiste that was 100% linen but I only see it available in the UK. Please leave a comment if you have seen it available in other countries.
