As normal, you can simply wet the end of the thread, so the thread can easily fit into the needle eyes without hassles.

We have used many threads in the past and tested most of the threads on the market, unfortunately, most of them were quite weak for bookbinding, and can snap by pulling the thread too tight. It is very important for us to use strong thread, as we restore and bind many valuable books in our bindery.

This thread we have been using for many years, we can confirm this is one of the strongest threads we ever used so far, it is tested by our book restorers and bookbinders.

If you want to make a journal that is slightly bigger than A5, and the journal has 8 sections, we have specially calculated 6000 mm for you, so it will be enough for you to make a journal, at the same time, you don't have to buy more than what you need.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us anytime.
