A linen thread from Rainbow Gallery in size 16/2. It is wetspun, and like all linen, very strong. Good for pulled work. Some of the colors coordinate with the colors of 18 mesh colored canvas. Each card is 20 yards, 100% linen. Please hand wash after testing for color fastness. For needlepoint, for use on 18-24 mesh canvas. Also good for cross stitch on 14 count aida. Made in Sweden.
