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 hockle.

We recommend a smaller twine for sewing seams and a larger twine for sewing larger rings.
