Item details

100% pure linen waxed bookbinding thread - available in 3 gauges and 3 lengths.
Coated in beeswax for trouble free sewing.

Thickness / Weight
25/3 - Medium. A great all-rounder and our most popular for medium and heavy weight papers. Use our Standard or Large Bookbinding Needles with this thread.

Our threads are genuine linen threads specifically designed for bookbinders; it's absolutely the best you can buy for your bookbinding needs. It is FAR superior to cotton thread which should not be used in bookbinding as it tends to tear paper. Our threads are waxed which helps to eliminate knots and makes handling much easier.

Nice quick delivery, this was the small option for cord, but it still looks like plenty. It is quite a fine weight of thread, but also seems nice and strong.
