This is an Irish Linen Barbours twine. It has a very high breaking strain especially for sewing upholstery pads and is used for traditional upholstery work. 3 Cord is the finer twine used for sewing a feather edge stitch or sewing layers of calico or scrim around an iron frame.
The thicker No 4 and No 6 cord is also available.
FREE Twine Holder when you purchase any two balls of twine. Just order two balls (either 3, 4 or 6 cord) and our sales team in the office will automatically add the dispenser to your shopping basket before your order is despatched.
You can mix and match 3, 4 or 6 cord.
