International Orders

Due to the news of Royal Mail being affected by a cyber attack, they have issued a statement requesting people to stop posting orders internationally as there could be delays until the problem is rectified. 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.
