Aberdeen Thread by James Dickson

Break a thread into pieces and slowly, visually restore it.

You reveal a length of thread and give to the spectator to examine. You break it into multiple pieces. The pieces are shown separate, one-by-one, then rolled into a ball. Slowly, you pull the ends of the string to reveal that it has been fully, impossibly restored. The spectator can examine everything - and keep the restored thread as a souvenir.

The Gypsy Thread dates back to 1584. The plot was mentioned in The Discoverie of Witchcraft, one of the first books on magic ever published. In the past, the effect was somewhat cumbersome and required a significant amount of setup. ABERDEEN annihilates all of that.

The spectator can examine the string before and after the effect.
ABERDEEN takes the classic Gypsy Thread trick to an entirely new level. Everything is handled fairly. No fumbling around to conceal the method: the secret is hidden in plain sight. Multiple routines are taught - including a 100% impromptu presentation.

Creator James Dickson guides you through the subtleties and nuances that make this one of the most astonishing, beautiful, elegant magic effects you’ll ever perform. Includes enough Aberdeen Thread for hundreds of performances - you’ll have everything you need.

    Love it. I am only new to magic and not the best at sleight of hand so when my thread arrived I instantly thought oh no I'm not going to be able to pull this off but the tutorial is very easy to follow and with a little more practice I know this will become one of my favorites.

    This effect has been my all time favorite since seeing a version on World's Greatest Magic TV special. I could never find a good handling of this effect, till now. This one is probably the cleanest version of this trick. And too add the Theory11, they do offer refills on the thread, which is a major plus.
