Product Description

Fil Au Chinois Lin Cable, Waxed Linen Thread - 100% Corded Waxed Linen

*This item is a printed color card to represent, this item does not have actual thread samples*

Imported from France, Lin Cable is twisted linen that is assembled a second time, moistened, lightly waxed, and re-twisted. This moistening prevents the linen fibers from distorting. Cabling increases the resistance, giving a nicely rounded thread generally used for hand sewing luxury leather and canvas goods.

Harness Needles vs. Glovers Needles

  • Harness needles have a rounded tip. More often used on leather where holes are pre-made with pricking irons or punches.
  • Glovers needles have a sharpened tip. More often used with canvas or fabric where pre-made holes are not needed. Can be used on leather but will take more force to pierce through the leather.
