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.

Gypsy thread on steroids! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 28th, 2016
First, let me say that I do love "workers". Second, I also do love ingenious new methods that aren't too complicated to use. Third, I am a working semi-pro magician who wants to put 80% of my effort into presenting a trick. And now, this little gem covers all three of the above statements! A modern take on the classic "Gypsy Thread" plot. That is easy to do (well, first some practice of course) anytime, anywhere. Fits both close-up, parlor- and stage work. Packs small but plays huge! Give it a try if you like thread work - you won't regret it. Good job Mr. Dickson!

I think this works best for close up because the length of the thread. It brings a lot of thread but is a lot harder to do it longer than a feet anf a half. Its a close up worker, and brings enough for hundreds of performances.

This requires very careful handling and has poor reliability in its ability to disguise the method
