This is a lovely thread for hand quilting, but can also be used in your sewing machine. It is 100% cotton, very high quality with a smooth finish, low lint and comes in beautiful colours. 1300m on each spool.
the 50wt is strong and thin, and results in remarkably flat and crisp seams. while it is wonderful for piecing, subtle quilting & topstitching, english paper piecing it also works incredibly well for needle turn applique, bobbin and machine lace, machine applique (straight stitch, zigzag, blind hem and blanket stitch,) machine embroidery, dense machine quilting, subtle machine and longarm quilting, basting, whole cloth and micro quilting.
