Somac thread, now available at Buchteriger Supplier in my Etsy shop
new thread, new colours (Somac, England, non-waxed linen thread)

Since last week I have a new thread in my stock. That is always exciting for me! I love that new burst of colour in the drawers of the cabinet where I am keeping it, and I hope you’ll love it, too!

It comes in two thicknesses, either 4-ply or 3-ply, and is a non-waxed thread of the highest quality. Other than the Gruschwitz-thread, the other non-waxed linen thread in my inventory, it has not been calandered, and thus has a matte finish, rather than the sheen of the German thread. Comparen with the Austrian Goldschild linen it is twisted more firmly and is more even, I would say.
There are 12 colours of 4-ply thread available and 9 of the 3-ply. I especially like the emerald green which has a tone that is very new to my collection and not available from other brands. See more of this thread on Etsy.

Already a week earlier I received a new delivery from France which contained five new colours both of the thickest and the medium thickness lin cable in my shop. I now carry all the colours that they produce rountinely. Check out the new colours on Etsy by clicking here.

And then, as if I had not photographed and edited enough already, I decided to add some variety packs and starter packs to my shop to make it easier for new customers to choose. They contain not only a choice of popular colours, but also combine thread from different manufacturers to try. If you have an idea for another variety pack (do you think people would like a “blue” pack, for example?) let me know. I might add one.

As a side note: Since a week I have a new tool to play with since last weekend (‘t was my birthday), and I am burning đŸ˜‰ to use it: A soldering iron, well, really a hot multi-tool made by Dremel, which can also burn wood, and I suppose will also create interesting marks on leather, and who knows, maybe paper. I’ll have to try. I hope I’ll find the time to play soon, and of course I’ll let you know when the results are presentable.
