64m/70yd Spool. This gorgeous 8wt, 2-ply 100% long staple Egyptian cotton thread is double-gassed* and mercerized, resulting in a wonderfully smooth and lustrous surface that allows the thread to glide beautifully through all types of fabrics and fibres. The thread’s tight twist creates beautifully firm stitches while its surface sheen produces a luxurious finish to embellishment stitchery. This subtle tone-on-tone and random dyed contrasting variegated, Eleganza™ is a perfect match for your next hand work or embellishment project. This range of colours was created by Sue Spargo, Author teacher and embroitery and embellishment inspiration. * The process of double gassing involves burning off the lint from the thread two times, resulting in a much softer and cleaner finish.
