5-ply Waxed Flat Twine (500 Feet) is a pre-waxed, flat construction polyester twine used for hand sewing. The ply used depends on personal preference, but we recommend this 5-ply twine doubled for sewing 7/8-inch rings. Use with a #17 or #18 hand needle. This waxed 5-ply twine has a flat (versus round) construction, which makes it lie closer to the fabric and less likely to chafe away. It can be split like sinew and is easy to hackle.
Weight: 5-ply Construction: Flat Length: 500 ft. Width: 1/8″ Size: 4 oz. cone Break test: 70 lb.
We recommend a smaller twine for sewing seams and a larger twine for sewing larger rings.
