Shipping During December

Royal Mail strikes are happening on: 1st, 9th, 11th, 14th, 15th, 23rd and 24th December.

Due to this your orders may be delayed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. A quick reminder that our last posting day is 23rd December


We now stock a range of fine threads that can be used in railway modelling and other hobbies. All of the threads are cotton and some are plain and some are waxed for longer life. Whilst the finer threads are not the strongest, they can be used for a wide range of things on layouts such as telephone wires or fencing wires.

The range of colours is currently small as we are only keeping a few of the available options. The colours we will keep will be black, grown, rust, light grey and a few others.

The thickness of these threads can be confusing. The larger the number the finer the thread.
