I want to get myself some Barbour's red hand linen, I am unsure of 5, 6, or 7 cord. Where can I buy it and is anybody willing to sell me a few yards of each so I can try a bit before commiting to a $50 spool that I may not be happy with.


Thanks
Jeremy

For general purpose work such as holsters 5 cord t 6 SPI is optimum in my experience and FWIW also fits with the recommendation of A; Stohlman.
To purchase I get mine from Campbell-Bosworth.......http://campbell-bosworth.com/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=linen

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Thanks for the source, and thanks also for the tutorial on your Website. I have read it several times while getting going on this new addiction if mine. I need to make a batch of the sticky wax as well, unless there is a source for ready made that is acceptable.
