Irish Waxed Linen
Crawford Threads is the world renowned manufacturer of strong, high quality linen threads. Straight out of Belfast, Ireland, this linen thread is conditioned (waxed with paraffin) for your convenience. What does the wax provide exactly? It acts as a protective coating around your thread so as to reduce wear from bead friction. It holds knots incredibly well. And it gives a great rustic texture to your finished piece.
We've got loads of colors to choose from and when you're considering which ply will fit through your beads, here's the low-down:
2-ply is approximately 0.4mm || 3-ply is approximately 0.55mm || 4-ply is approximately 0.7mm || 7-ply is approximately 1.2mm || 12-ply is approximately 1.5mm
This thread is versatile. We love it for wrap bracelets, leather accents, metal accents, or basic stringing as a base thread.
