Product description

Product description

Genuine 100% flax linen thread (weight Tex 17x3) is similar to general-purpose thread but is finer and softer. It is good for hand and machine sewing of medium and fine fabrics. Machine sewing with linen thread is not something we recommend for novices. When working with medium-weight materials both by machine and by hand, try our heavier fine linen thread 20x3 or fine linen thread 33x2; for hand sewing coarser materials, we recommend a medium strength linen thread.

We have extra fine linen thread in a whole spectrum of colors (available colors marked with an X in the photo) and, if that’s not enough, they take dye well.

Linen thread is especially well-suited for sewing historically accurate period costumes. Thread made of linen was widely used before the introduction of cotton thread in the nineteenth century.


Linen thread can be laundered at 60°C and ironed on high. When caring for garments sewn with linen thread, follow care guidelines for the fabric used.
