The Thread Gatherer = Flax n’ Colors #16
100% Linen Thread. Heavier weight than the #20.
The subtle sheen of linen is a lovely contrast to either silk or wool threads. Suggested usage is as it comes off the skein (do not ply down) and use it for embroidery, wool appliqué or basketweave on 13 count needlepoint canvas. It also lays nicely for specialty stitches.
