The Fil Au Chinois gloving thread is a solid, waxed sewing thread n° 120. It can be used for patchwork, appliqué, trapunto and quilting. It is also recommended for Lunéville hook embroidery.
It is extremely popular for very fine cross stitch on 12 or 16 count linen.
So, it is a 100% cotton thread mainly for hand stitching. .
It used to be sold on small wooden spools.
Here is a collection of vintage spools from J. Thiriez.
This gloving thread is available in 30 colours on 150 metre spools.
We also propose four different assortments of 12 spools in different tones presented in gorgeous boxes, as well as a gift box containing a selection of 8 spools.
For larger projects, this thread is also available on 1000 metre cones.
A printed colour chart is also available, and the storage boxes are also available empty.
As with all the Fil Au Chinois threads, labels and packaging were all designed by Frédérique Crestin-Billet.
