Fil au Chinois Lin Glacé

Wonderful waxed linen thread by trusted and historical French brand Fils au Chinois, which was founded in 1847. You choose the quantity and colors for your set! Choose one, three, five or ten spools in the colors of your choice, or choose a set of all 23 colors.
You can indicate which color numbers you’d like in the Personalization box. I love using this thread for beaded necklaces and bracelets and other jewelry, and it’s ideal for bookbinding, leatherwork and tons of DIY projects. I’ve also used this in stitching with heavy handmade paper as well as slow stitching.

Made from flax, the strands are twisted together to make a smooth, resistant thread. It’s passed through a starch bath that includes beeswax.
