Linen Thread on Wooden Reel - Fine
A stitch in time saves nine! Don’t wait until after the event to mend that tear, whip out your reproduction needle and fix it now! With our wooden spooks there’s no need to hide your modern plastic spool away; Make your mending, sewing, stitching and embroidery part of the show.
Our linen thread comes on a wooden spool that fits right into your medieval or renaissance historical sewing kit. Even our most coarse thread is lighter-weight than you typically find at general sewing stores and comes in four weights. So, whether you’re hemming a gauze veil or sewing a thick wool, we have a thread weight that will suit. Because of the nature of this linen thread you will find the occasional slub which adds to the charm of the natural product. We recommend waxing your thread with beeswax before use.
This spool comes with 50 metres of fine linen thread. The thread is a two-ply structure and most suitable for sewing seams on lightweight fabrics such as lightweight linen or silk, and hemming medium weight linens, silks or wool.
Our linen thread is also available in Very Fine, Fine, Medium and Coarse weight.
