Old Thread

Recently I also inherited a lot of old thread (I love the wooden spools) but I have heard that old thread isn't as strong as it deteriorates. I'm wondering if this is a concern If I plan on using this thread in some quilts I have promised to complete for my grandmother who passed away a year ago. Attached is a picture of only about half of the thread I have inherited, not including the thread I have been collecting myself.
On the left are mostly empty but have those awesome wooden spools.
