Linen thread is the most common kind of thread used in traditional bookbinding works. This thread from the brand Barbour is especially used for restoration works. Available per 10 meters. To give you a better idea of how much thread this is: for a Chain Stitched Notebook (A6 size), you will need about 75 cm of thread.
Packed in a card made of hand-marbled paper leftovers.
This thread is perfect for a needle size 18 and for restoration works.
