According to Japanese master bookbinder Kojiro Ikegami, author of what many consider THE book about Japanese bookbinding, the perfect thread for a Japanese binding is a silk twist about the same thickness as Perle 5 thread.

This silk here is just the right thickness at 400m per 100g. It has the same thickness as the (simple) spun 12/3 silk that you can find here:

the "super" spun makes this silk even stronger and more even.

Other than for binding books this is a wonderful material for crochet or knitting, as well as especially lush macrame.
But all in all it is just a lush thread, and could serve everywhere where you are looking for softness combined with strength.

You can use it as it is, but it also takes different dyes well.

I offer it here in the following make-ups:
* 10m wound onto a cardboard card
* 30m as a skein
* 20g (approximately 80m) as a small,centre fed ball
* 45g (approximately 180m) as a good sized, centre-fed ball

If you wish a different make-up or different length or weights, let me best know before your purchase.

GORGEOUS! This is an excellent color variegation on luxuriously silky, chunky thread. Hilke is a stellar seller and communicates proactively - LOVE that! International shipping was surprising smooth and arrived much sooner than expectation - also love that! Customer for life.

This yarn is hands down gorgeous! Colors are vibrantly saturated. Silky and chunky at the same time. It's lovely to work with, as I use it for embroidery, and I never have an issue with it kinking-up as I stitch like I've encountered with other inferior threads.
