This listing is for one 25g spool (approx. 90m) of Yue Fung lightly waxed linen 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 left. The thread is produced in four thicknesses: 0.65mm diameter, 0.55mm diameter, 0.45mm diameter, and 0.35mm diameter. This is the 0.45mm diameter thread, a medium thickness, comparable to Lin Cable No. 632.

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.)


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