This listing is for 20m of three-ply french linen thread "Fil Auch Chinois, Lin Retors Nr. 40", on a star card like you can see in the pictures.


Linen thread is especially strong, and abrasion resistant. This thread here is very slightly waxed. This makes it easier to use and gives it a pleasant sheen.
Lin Retors can be used as heavy duty sewing thread for solid stitching (button, snaps, heavy fabrics, ...), is used for sewing light leather, and is ideal for beading, binding, model-making, odd jobs, ...I am using it for bookbinding when I want an especially thin thread, for mini books in particular.

Measuring with a caliper gauge yields a thickness of approximately 0.4mm or 0.015 inches.

In the pictures you can see photos of the star cards that I currently have in stock, and a packaging example.

The brand Fil Au Chinois was first registered in 1847 in Lille, and the threads are still completely produced in this region. The name dates back to that period in France when anything Oriental was fashionable. The thread does not come from China.

_*Please Note:*_
Colors viewed on a screen look usually different than the original since it depends on many factors like your hardware and your monitor settings.

Also the colour differs from dye lot to dye lot, sometimes significantly. This is due to the natural fibres and dying process used.

Very good quality thread! Perhaps more important and valued by me is the care of Hilke, the shopowner! She is an extraordinary communicator of detail and considerations. From the criteria of choices to the actual delivery in the US, Hilke is beyond anyone I have had the pleasure of working with in any case!
