Sorry I'm a bit late responding to your query.
I have two cones of FFR thread given to me in the '80s.
One is on a grey cone with an internal sticker
The second cone is blue with an internal sticker
The main thing is that this second cone is unused and is in its original
wrapper. The wrapper has a sticker stating (in blue ink)
Fil de Lin a Dentelles
I've just searched on line and there is a photo on the website
that shows two cones on the left of the picture, one is blue like mine,
the other is green with a red label. The article makes clear that these
are linen threads
So you are correct in that the thread is linen.
