All that said... Does any know where to buy this from in the United States? In small or large quantities?
I can't find one source, let alone a reliable source, for Tiger/Ritza thread here. I've only been able to order it as small samples from the UK and shipping cost make that not a sustainable option. If not for those small samples, I'd think the stuff was mythical - since its about as hard to find as a unicorn.
I'd even be willing to buy larger or industrial spools if that's all I can find.
Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

I use a lot of colours in my work I was after about 50 rolls two of each colour at one time and I was still directed to Abbey.
I did however come across this place recently but haven't contacted them yet http://www.jkusa.com/contact.htm I am unsure if they have the full line of the German Julius Koch or even if they are part of that group but it might be a place to start.
It seems the braided threads are more popular in England, Australia, New Zealand and Europe as there are other brands around they are Zircon,Mox, and Slam but I don't think you would be able to find them easily in the US either. There are a couple of others you might be able to find they are Serabraid and Coats Classic you can try http://www.amannusa.com/ for the serabraid. I recently directed someone else to them but aren't sure whether they contacted them or not and for Coats Classic http://www.coatsindu...threads/classic they should be able to direct you to a supplier for the US as they found me one for Western Australia.
I use threads from all the ones I mentioned as I'm not able to get all the colours I need from one brand they are all very similar to Tiger though if you don't have any luck with jkusa and don't want to ship from Abbey.
Hope this helps a bit

I do have Black and Dark Brown that I sell for $10 per 20 meters, postage free in North America.
If you would like to buy some just let me know.

That is why I figured that it would be better to put 20 rolls in one box rather than 20 boxes.
Shipping would kill you!

- I live in the uk near Abbey,, and I have Ritza here. I am happy to sell small amounts and post it to you. Let me look into how much an airmail letter is, and how much I could wind around a piece of card to fit into it .
- Best wishes Zoe

I called to Ukrainian office today, to ask them about Ritza25 for sale. But answer was denial. They don't sale this type at all. Just produce. (to export)
So I had a question (rhetorical): FOR WHOM they produce it? Two factories in Germany and Ukraine export to all over the world, but so hard to find it and buy...

I've posted that for fuller description of the situation.
