I use this thread in my bookbinding and find it easy to work with and is strong and sturdy. It holds up well over time and is the historical choice of bookbinders. Great for bookbinding, macrame, basket weaving, jewelry, and bead stringing. The wax reduces friction which allows the thread to glide through much more easily as you sew and keeps the fibers from fraying, plus it grips knots well so they won't untie by themselves.
This 4 ply cord is size 18 which is approximately 0.82 mm in diameter (comparable to 20 gauge wire).
Colors will vary from lot to lot and also may look different on your monitor. Please allow for slight color differences, and order extra for large projects.
