YLI Soft Touch 60wt cotton thread

We are re-photographing many of our threads for the online store. While I was learning all about how to use Camera Raw in Adobe Photoshop (oh my!) I realised how lovely this fine thread is for hand applique. Originally it was introduced as a bobbin thread but quilters found it worked perfectly for the tiny stitches needed to applique their pieces down to a background.

The thread is a long staple cotton and doesn’t have a lot of lint. There are 28 colours in 60 wt 2 ply. Each spool carries 250 yards – enough to keep you going for a long time!
