We have been trying out threads to use for our patterns and any other patterns you have.

We loved Finca but now, like Filato di Cantu, which we also loved, we feel supplies of Finca are not sustainable at present, due to Spanish problems.

We have found and worked with a thread little known in the UK.

Our newly sorted thread is just like Filato and Finca in that it is an Egyptian , mercerized, gassed cotton.

It is processed in France by Sajou and is called

Fil au Chinois

If you would like to know more about the history of Fil Au Chinois you can read about it here.

If you buy any thread from another supplier, us included, please buy enough to complete your project as there is a possibility it may well not continue. Many threads have been discontinued over the years I have been a lacemaker.
If you are making a table cloth, don't get caught out! Previously many of our ladies didn't buy enough
Filato de Cantu threads and took ages to do it, they then came back to us for more Filato de Cantu which had then gone.
