Exceptional quality linen thread, wet spun to eliminate "hairs" on the thread. This thread should not be stranded, and has a subtle sheen and luster. Londonderry Linen Thread may be used for cross-stitch, drawn thread, pulled thread, and Hardanger embroidery. Sizes are equivalent to a #5 (18/3), #8 (30/3), and #12 (50/3) pearl cotton and floss (80/3).
