Lin Cable

Lin Cable is the best linen thread for leather work in the world and is famously used by many true luxury goods brands. Lin Cable costs around 10x more than , standard linen thread, however the quality, consistency and choice of colours is a worthwhile investment we feel.



A bright, nearly true bright white, excellent for contrast stitching with all leather colours.

Natural LinCable


An off white. A more subtle, softer choice than Natural and great in particular with browns like Bakers Oak Brown or Gold Barenia. Lovely thread, probably our favourite.

Ecru Lin Cable




Light brown, excellent choice with a mid brown leather like Oak Brown, Oxford Tan, Gold Barenia.

Beige Lin Cable


Brown is a very good close match for Oxford Tan, Oak Brown or Hazel. A subtle contrast with darker browns like Australian Nut.

Brown Lin Cable


A soft medium brown, subtle contrast with the darker browns. Very like the Barbour Brown.

Lichen Lin Cable


Soil is a more or less perfect match with Australian Nut, Burgundy and Dark Stain.

Dark Brown

A rich dark brown, good with Dark Havanna.

Mouse Grey

An intriguing colour, a good contrast with black, blue or green. With black the effect can be somewhat like traditional morning suit trousers.

A very good match with British Racing Green (the choice if you pick self coloured), a good dark green colour very much the colour of a pine needle.
