Item No. 19009

Strong and luxurious quilting thread, made of 100% Egyptian cotton. It is mercerised, i.e. it has been pre-treated to strengthen the fibres. Mercerised thread is soft and glossy. This ensures that you can achieve a really nice finish when quilting or doing patchwork. It is a good idea to wax the thread with paraffin wax (item number 4131). Waxing ensures that the thread glides more easily through the fabric, e.g. when you quilt by hand. Our quilting thread is OEKO-TEX 1 certified. Nm 4/3 Nm (metric thread number) = indicates the length of 1 g of thread. The higher the number, the finer the thread. Example: Nm 3/1 means that 3 m of thread weighs 1 g and that the thread consists of a single strand. Nm 3/2 means that 3 m of thread weighs 1 g and that the thread consists of two strands.
