How does the Original compare to Super Fine?
Many customers ask the difference between the two, so we feel that it is worth posting an article separately to summarise relevant information for customers' reference.
Meisi Original linen thread is the first generation that has been used in the industry for many years, it is used for hand stitching only and is available in more thicknesses.
Meisi Super Fine linen thread is the exceptional luxury thread, it was developed based on the Original by increasing the refinement of several processes, so that it’s finer and smoother, suitable for both hand and machine sewing.
Clients choose between them based on their personal considerations and needs.
Based on the requirement of our clients who specialised in making saddles, trunks, shoes or any other leather crafts that need thicker threads, we developed M70 and M90 for the Original version. At this moment, we only have very few colours for those thicknesses, they are Black, Coffee, Brown, Caramel and Khaki, if you want any other colour or specification that is not available now, feel feel to leave us a comment or message, we listen to all our client's opinions and consider their needs while developing future collections.
These two photos were kindly provided by Pro Atelier Plus's client on 13th Nov 2019, only use it as your personal references. Please do not use these in any commercial platform without our consent.
The Original has 68 colours while Super Fine has 86 colours (more colours releasing soon).

Design & Packaging
The Dragon is the most legendary creature in Chinese mythology, it is said to be the most potent symbol of good fortune, power and strength.
The dragon symbol is worn by emperors, depicted in the most precious materials from gold jewellery to jade figurines in most oriental cultures.
It was only right to use the dragon design to represent the best linen thread on the market today.
For Meisi Linen Thread at Pro Atelier Plus, we used the concept of the dragon as the main character to compliment the high quality and strength of the linen thread that is Made in China.
We used two different green tones and style of dragons to distinguish between The Original and Super Fine. The original using light tones and a baby dragon character whilst The Super Fine in dark royal tones with a godly like dragon protecting the thread.
As the story goes the dragon grants wishes and helps people prosper and in turn, gives them success. We hope at Pro Atelier Plus by using our Meisi linen thread, your atelier will continue to grow and blossom into what you wish it to be.
10 Metres mini pack
10 metres pack is perfect for a special project, so you don't have to purchase a whole spool for small projects. It's also ideal for testing different collections.
We have a lot of request for thicker linen thread, especially in the bookbinding industry. There are only very limited colours available for M70(0.75mm) & M90(0.90mm). Our next goal is expanding more colour ranges in these two thicknesses. Feel free to let us know which colour(s) you would like to see.
