Item No. 14043

This is durable, soft and 100% natural, high-quality thread made of Egyptian cotton, which you can use for hand-sewn and machine-sewn projects. The thread is mercerised – i.e. it has been pre-treated to strengthen the fibres. Mercerised thread is softer and glossier. For great results, use it in all your projects. The mercerisation process ensures that cotton thread shrinks less and therefore keeps its shape better. Our cotton thread is OEKO-TEX 1 certified. Nm 68/2 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.
