Love this


I offer here one 25g spool of Yue Fung lightly waxed linen thread in thickness 0.55mm. The spool has about 80m of thread.
The wax coating gives the thread a nice sheen and helps to protect from fraying. Although it is a twist, not a cabled thread, it is very round and gives even stitching results.

It is suitable both for hand stitching and for machine sewing.

The images show a stitching sample, with the thread in this listing is the second from the right. The thread is produced in four thicknesses: 0.65mm diameter, 0.55mm diameter, 0.45mm diameter, and 0.35mm diameter. This is the 0.55mm diameter thread, a medium thickness.

This thread is produced in more than 40 different colours of which I currently carry 11. I might be able to order in more colours for you, if interested, send me a message to discuss details.

If you order three spools of Yue Fung Thread, you'll receive one randomized 8m length of thread on top. (As long as stocks last.)


This thread is a perfect choice for leather sewing, and this thickness is also one of those that would be ideal for bookbinding.
Yue Fung Threads are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to more expensive French thread.
