Bookbinding Thread, 4-ply English Linen Thread, Leather Sewing Thread, 50g Spool

Bookbinding Thread, 4-ply English Linen Thread, Leather Sewing Thread, 50g Spool
£18.40 16 Available
Love this


This listing is for one 50g cone of 4-ply, non-waxed, English linen thread from SoMac. Please check below for a list of available colours.

Somac makes linen thread of a very high quality which shows in an evenly round and evenly thick thread. 4-ply and 3-ply are two standard thicknesses used for bookbinding. The 4-ply being slightly thicker, makes visible sewing pattern stand out better.

Generally linen thread is valued for it's high strength and linen is used in many traditional crafts such as harness and saddle making, tent making, and is used for puppets on a string, crochet, macrame, jewelry making, bookbinding and many, many more.

I am currently low in stock of dark sepia, poppy red, brick red, and grey / please enquire before ordering several of those
I am out of stock of rapeseed yellow, cobalt blue, caramel, and beige - sorry!


SoMac are an English thread manufacturer from Chester.

This is a very high quality thread which I love to use for all my bookbinding projects, especially for leather bindings, as this seems where their range of colours blends in best.
