This kind of linen thread is probably what your mother and grandmother had in thatdrawer in their kitchen: non-dyed, food safe, and used for tying a handle to a pudding form, for tying up the sunday roast or to tie up anything really that needed tying up.

This is a solid linen thread and as such very strong and tear resistant. It can be used for cooking, gardening, for all kinds of craft projects like building kites, puppets on strings, or toy bows, beading, bookbinding and many more.

Three different sizes are available, the lower the number, the thicker the thread. They come in cute little balls that feed from the inside and have 30m of thread.

The number 8 has a diameter of approx. 0.8mm, No. 12 a diameter of approx. 0.65mm, and the No. 16 thread is about 0.55mm thick.

Absolutely gorgeous thread! It’s even lovelier in real life and I can’t wait to find the perfect project to use it on. Shipping was also super fast.
