This listing is for one 50g spool of high quality traditional bookbinding thread for hand bookbinding.

The numbers refer to the traditional (and non-standardized) numbering system of the French manufacturer. The higher the number, the thinner the thread. No. 12 is a fairly thick thread (can be seen in the second picture), the No. 30 is quite thin.

Which thread is the right one for you depends on the paper you are binding, on your binding style, and personal preference.

This thread should be waxed by hand before use.

It's colour is bright with a strawy shine. This together with the apparent twining makes it definitely appear as a natural fibre. Perfect for binding heavier quires and preservation. In the package was also a nice little surprise.

This is a really good quality linen thread, that is treated with a micro-cristalline wax so it has a sheen and is very smooth. Great selection of colours and lots of thread on the spool. Thanks to Hilke for taking a lot of trouble over my order, as I had some special delivery instructions. It arrived safely, well packaged as always and with a little extra "something" inside - many thanks!

Fil au Chinois Lin Cable is a really great thread for all kinds of crafts, but especially for bookbinding and leather work. It has a smooth, slightly glossy finish. It is very tightly twisted though, so I find I need to run it between my nails a couple of times, to relax the twist slightly. Buechertigersupplies has a great selection and offers cut lengths, which is really helpful if you need a number of colours and can't stretch to whole spools. Really speedy service and quick delivery. Well packaged with eco-friendly materials. Thanks once again for a good purchasing experience - my favourite supplies shop!
