A great thread for use in hand sewing, basting, and sewing machine projects. Also, Mettler silk-finish cotton thread turns embroidery designs and decorative stitches into individual works of art. Another feature of this high-quality thread is colorfast for years due to the special dyeing techniques. In addition, the silk finish threads maintain a soft, smooth silk-like feel and will enhance all your sewing projects.
