25m of Crawford's 4-ply Waxed Linen Thread, up to 5 colours of your choice
Love this


Crawford's 4-ply Waxed Linen thread is the best choice for everyone who is just starting out with binding books. But it is also a favourite of many seasoned bookbinder as it comes in a broad variety of colours and the wax makes it especially easy to handle.

This listing is for a total of 25 meters. You'll be asked for your choice of colours during checkout. There's a 5m minumum per colour, so you can enter up to 5 colours.

As I am buying from the manufacturer in the UK, I have some additional colours, not usually available from American whole-sellers.


Ideal thread for exposed Coptic bindings, and all applications outside.
