This listing is for a total of 50m of Gruschwitz’s NeL 18/3 linen thread. Let me know your choice of colours during checkout. Minimum order per colour is 5m, so you can choose up to 10 colours.

Linen thread is valued for its strength and used in a variety of traditional crafts like bookbinding, sewing leather or heavy fabric, knotting and beading.

This thread is ideal for sewing light to medium leather, and for making exposed book bindings like Coptic bindings, and is also used where the binding thread is to blend in with the color of the pages or the covering material.

Measuring with a calliper gauge yields a thickness of approximately 0.6mm.


Calendered linen thread with an extra firm finish. Can be used without waxing with practice, but hand waxing is generally recommended.
