Hmm, I'm not sure what it might be called outside of the US.

According to the Coats & Clark site, it calls for a 3.25mm hook (US "D" size)

This link will take you to a page that gives breakdowns and explanations for thread cotton.

Some fingering weight yarns would be about the same size as size 5 thread.
