Waxed 18/5 1.4m length
18/5 waxed linen thread in 1.4 metre lengths
18/5 is amongst the thickest normally available. We would recommend it for sewing larger books such as A3 albums, and any of the open-back bindings where the thread shows.
Linen thread is very strong, and for most bookbinding purposes thinner threads have more than sufficient strength. This thread is waxed in the factory after manufacture.
