This twist is a high quality traditional bookbinding thread for hand bookbinding. Different calipers cost differently (the thinner the more expensive).
The numbers refer to the traditional (and non-standardized) numbering system unique to the French manufacturer. But if you have bought bookbinding thread before, you will probably find that the same number thickness will give a comparable thread thickness.
The higher the number, the thinner the thread. No. 12 is a fairly thick thread, and would be suitable for binding a book with voluminous paper, or with a binding style that asks for a considerable swell in the spine. A thicker thread is also welcome if your binding will be exposed, and you want to emphasis the sewing.
No. 15 is what I personally use most of the time, and already a fairly thick thread for the task of binding journals, I would think that No. 20/25 are the most common a bookbinder might use. - But of course that really depends!
No. 30 and 40 are already pretty thin, and would be suitable for bindings with many signatures and/or with dense paper.
This thread should be waxed by hand before use.
