Natural - American Waxed Linen - now in stock - limited supply

We have received some of the natural color in the American Waxed Linen. The sizes of cords are not the same as the American Heather Sand color we already carry. Please be aware that the new 4 ply natural American waxed linen is approximately the same size as the Crawford 4 ply. The 6 ply natural American is slightly smaller than the Crawford 7 ply. The heather sand is thicker in both sizes.



Currently, the Natural Color is unavailable from the Crawford factory.
The current supply of raw materials will not dye that color correctly. They are working on the problem,
but it will likely be several months before it is resolved - not before Spring 2024.

Please Note: Dyelots vary with each shipment. Monitors see colors differently.
These colors are only for reference and WILL NOT BE EXACT!!!

Waxed Linen Thread made in the United States

Crawford waxed linen is PH neutral which is desireable to bookbinders. We do not know the PH of the American waxed linen.

We have received a limited supply of the natural color in the American Waxed Linen. The sizes of the actual cords are not the same as the Heather Sand color we already carry. The 4 ply & 6 ply heather sand is thicker in both sizes.

Please be aware that the new 4 ply natural American waxed linen is approximately the same as the Crawford 4 ply. The 6 ply natural American is slightly smaller than the Crawford 7 ply. As we do not have a large stock, customers will be limited to 3 spools.

This cord is the "natural" linen color that we call: Heather Sand.. These cords are thicker than the Crawford waxed linen. 4 ply is closer to 7 ply Crawford, and 6 ply is probably about like 12 ply Crawford in diameter.
