How do you like your sewing thread?

It's the time of year to work on the wares for next season, and I've been thinking about my linen sewing thread. Currently, I'm offering the thread in 20 metre packages, but seriously sewing with this thread means that 20 metres won't last for long - and that means needing to buy several rolls at once.

So I am wondering: What package units (length in metres) would you prefer when buying linen sewing thread? 20 metres? 50? Maybe even a hundred on one roll? Or should I offer different unit sizes? Please let me know what you would prefer!

I think 100 meters per roll would be good for people who are, as you say, "seriously sewing" with your linen thread.

I agree. 20 m is definitely not much. If it's not too much of a hassle you might offer 20, 50 and 100 m, or otherwise 50 and 100 m.

I agree with Iðunn. 20, 50 and 100 m would be perfect!
All the best,

Thanks for your input! I'll think about whether I will offer several sizes (and how to mark them to tell them apart), but I'll definitely include the 100 metres spool.
