This 16/2 heavy weight linen thread makes great little bows for handmade cards, excellent weight/size for use with buttons.
Approximately 40 yards per spool!
Diameter is equivalent to 5 strands of embroidery floss.
Confusingly similar to Stampin' Up!'s linen thread in weight/diameter/size of thread.
Use the small, handy button (please refer to inset photo) affixed to the top of the wooden spool to secure thread end.
Size of wooden spool: approx. 2" in height and 1-1/4" in diameter.
Equivalent to four (4) strands of embroidery floss. (Take a skein of DMC Embroidery Floss and remove two strands - the four strands remaining is the size/weight of this linen thread.)
