£9.00 58 Available
Love this


You are purchasing one 25g spool of thread which has 90m (approx 98 yards) in original packaging with the original label.

Goldschild thread is non-waxed 18/3 linen thread made in Austria. (It is also sold as Londonderry thread in the US).
It is dyed using traditional techniques which give beautiful, natural looking results which are light and water resistant.

This thread has been made with fibrecrafts such as crochet, tatting or lace making in mind. It is great as an embroidery thread and can be used everywhere where a strong thread is needed.
It can be use for leather sewing and bookbinding, but since it is twisted less firmly than leather or bookbinding thread usually would be, it shold be used for fairly light items.

The book in one of the pictures was made using this thread; it is not part of this listing.

out of stock: golden brown
low stock: brown, ash grey, natural (please confirm before ordering more than one of those)


A linen thread great for embroidery on all kinds of material (including leather - I love to decorate my leather journals with this thread).

It can also be used for bookbinding (light volumes) and all kinds of fibre craft like knitting and crochet.
