The waxed cotton threads included in this set are a colourful and thicker alternative to the traditional linen thread used in bookbinding. The treads are pre-waxed, so you don’t need to wax it again. The wax reduces friction, making the sewing process easier and avoiding undesired kinks.
This set contains 5 metres of thread per colour (white, grey and black). To give you a better idea of how much thread this is: for a 4-hole Japanese Binding Book (A5 size), you will need about 75 cm of thread.
Each thread is packed in a card made of hand-marbled paper leftovers. Cotton thread suitable for a needle size 15 and for works like Japanese Stab Binding or Saddle Stitch Binding.
