Lin Cable thread group purchase in the UK

Recommended Posts

I would like to order some Lin Cable thread from France if I order 12 spools there is a significant discount I cant justify that expenditure in one go. if there is anyone else who would like to order with me I am happy to share the discount.

regards

Michael

This sounds an interesting idea, so count me in for 1, maybe 2 spools.  

I did have a very old 4/5ths used spool I was given, and I quite liked it, but it was white (well, very grubby white after many years in someone's garage).

After I posted this I was contacted by a member via PM with an alternative supplier in France who was willing to supply thread without a minimum purchase of 150 euros.

I have asked their permission to share the prices. Mando Fr are an authorised supplier of Fil Au Chinois Lin Cable and carry the full range

Fil Au Chinois Lin Cable 332  price 12.39 euro plus vat 

Fil Au Chinois Lin Cable 532 price  15.56 euro plus vat

Delivery is via UPS and for my order was 16 euro

These are whole sale prices from Mando France I have been dealing with José he can be contacted via email at this address mando.paris@wanadoo.fr their website does not contain prices but they are happy to provide them on request.

I hope this helps others to try this excellent product.

Hi Geoff

I have to be honest it is not my favourite thread, In use I find it coils up on itself and appears to fray and snap easily. 

Mando were very efficient to deal with but only accept bank transfer which costs extra.

I have just  purchased a couple of reels from Deco Cuir and I must say I find it great to sew with. It's the price I find prohibitive but the ones you quote are almost half what you would pay elsewhere. What thickness were you sewing with if you find it breaking easily?

Hi Dunluce 

I have been using 532 I have four or five reels and find they all have a similar issue. It might be partly my fault in that I don't like joints so I tend to work with long pieces of thread.

Mando are nice people who sell to leather workers at a reasonable price as listed above. The best way to contact them is via email  mando.paris@wanadoo.fr I dealt with José who was most helpful.
