Natural linen thread ~ various thicknesses ~ in skeins or single Threads ~ waxed

A Thread is a unit of length equivalent to 1.4 metres ~ 54 inches ~ which is a standard circumference of the cylinders used in fabric and textile manufacture. We use a capital and emboldening here to emphasis this specialist use of the word thread.

The length of one Thread is a little long for convenient hand sewing small books ~ half a thread is suggested for small books. Bookbinders who can tie the weaver's knot have no problem with joining threads whilst sewing sections (signatures). The technique is easy to learn ~ we have a separate note on it.
