Gruschwitz calendar their thread, which means they press it really hard after twisting. This gives it a hard outer finish and a lush sheen.

The thread is not waxed. Waxing is recommended for outdoor use and where the thread is repeatedly pulled through thin holes, for example in leather working or for bookbinding.

It makes a grand thread for puppets on strings.

This thread has a diameter of about 0.6mm and a thread number of NeL 18/3.
