This 4 ply waxed linen thread is ideal for Coptic, Longstitch, Secret Belgian and Japanese Stab Stitch books. You can also use it for other stitching crafts, macrame, beading, jewellery and small-scale weaving.
At 4 ply, the width is just under 1mm, comparable to 12/4, and the wax is vegan. The wide range of colours makes it easy to co-ordinate thread with cover materials to give your projects flair. I use Crawford Waxed Linen Thread for most of my books and can recommend it for any exposed spine binding.
DELIVERY: In stock & ready to ship worldwide.
Colours may vary slightly between dye lots; if colour matching is crucial you can order a Shade Card. You may also find this Colour Conversion Chart useful as the colour names above don't necessarily correlate with Crawford's names.
