Our quilting thread is made from 100% natural mercerized long staple cotton and it comes on a recyclable plastic cone. Great for quilting, sewing, hemming, or embroidery, our quilting thread has a consistent color and quality, and it is kink-free, smooth, and easy to use. This thread is compatible with all major sewing-machine brands and has a good amount of tension and minimal linting. A slight satin sheen gives this thread a lustrous finish, and it can be used for top stitching and decorative stitching in addition to basting, appliques, and weaving. Whether you are using this thread for hand applique, hand piecing, long arm quilting, machine applique, or machine embroidery, the large spools give this quilting thread an edge.
