Vinymo MBT Thread is one of Japan's best kept secrets for both machine sewing and hand sewing alike. This round braided, twisted and bonded polyester thread will not fray or snap, and offers a very similar tensile strength to Tiger Thread (without the frustrating flat braid that many people talk about). Every spool comes lubricated to sew in your machine, and with a few passes on a piece of beeswax, the thread will be set up to hand-sew. We love the versatility of this thread, and the amazing colour palette! If you are not already sold on this lovely thread, feel free to check out Nigel Armitage's Vinymo Thread Review

A look at an interesting thread that recently came to my attention. It's round, it's strong, its cheap, whats not to like. Have a look, see what you think. An interesting update… We have just heard back from Vinymo and they put their sizes as follows: Size 1: .8mm Size 5: .6mm Size 8: .4mm I agree with the Size 8 being 0.4mm but think they are generous on the other two. What I have here is closer to: Size 1: .6mm Size 5: .5mm Size 8: .4mm It is possible that they are measuring prior to spooling and given the stretch of the thread, I get a different reading off the spool. I have put it all through the Vernier and am happy with the measurements of the thread I have here. These measurements are consistent across the colours I have. You can see for yourself in the video what it looks like, you have a choice of small medium and large, I think that should cover the inconsistencies. Just be wary, the size may differ slightly dependant on tension at time of spooling. www.districtleathersupply.com
