International Orders

Update on 3rd February 2023: Royal Mail are still requesting people to stop posting new orders internationally through the Post Office. This is to allow them time to rectify the problems they are still having after the cyber attack a few weeks ago. Any international orders placed will be held until we are able to post them again.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


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.
