We have been making and using the Lucet since 1985. They come packaged with thread and instructions. I have written a book that is filled with information on the history and technique of making different types of cording, uses for the finished cord and different types of thread to use on the Lucet. We make a quality wood Lucet that has a silken finish.
I began using the Lucet back in 1983 when I was re-enacting and needed a time period 1750 or earlier needlework weaving tool, to take with me. I needed something portable and the Lucet was period correct and easy to learn. The resulting finished cord comes in handy for many uses during Medieval, Colonial and Modern times. Before the advent of buttons, hook 'n' eyes, and zippers, cording was the only way to keep clothing on the body and it was also used for decorative trims, and parts of jewelry.
