Gros Bis is a multi-purpose, waxed linen string ideal for DIY, gardening, book binding and jewellery making. Being completely un-dyed, it is perfectly hygienic and is traditionally used to tie up roasts prior to cooking! The waxing, which makes the string smoother, consists of a 100% natural starch bath to which bee's wax is added.
Size n°8 - the thickest of the three existing sizes
Length: 32 yards (30 meters).
Available in Ecru.
The ball is presented in a delightful box with a hole reinforced by a metal eyelet. This transforms the box into a mini dispenser making the string much easier to use.
