English Linen Thread, 3-ply, Coloured Bookbinding Thread, Leather Sewing
£21.00 18 Available
Love this


This listing is for a full 50g spool of English, non-waxed linen thread from SoMac. This is a very high quality linen thread which shows in an evenly round thread of even thickness. See below for a list of available colours.

In general linen thread is chosen for its strength and is used in many traditional crafts such as leather sewing (harness and saddle making), tent and sail making, and bookbinding.

If you use it to bind books, you can wax it to the desired amount by hand. The advantage of using less wax is that it will draw less dirt and dust and won't leave greasy residue on the pages.

COLOUR/STOCK Information
currently all colours in stock


This is English thread from Chester. Ideal for all projects that can do with lesser wax.

Only downside is the limited range of colours. I love to use it on all projects where the colour fits well.
