Thread - Star Thread/Hand Quilting (Solid and Multi-color)
Star Thread is a 100% natural cotton fiber thread, 3-ply biodegradable, highly absorbent and static resistant long staple Egyptian cotton. Hand quilting thread is heavier than other threads. Mercerized for greater strength and luster, increased dye affinity and low elongation, there are 500 yards per spool for solid colors and 425 yards of thread per spool for the variegated which makes it a great value. Use this thread for piecing, hand quilting and machine quilting. Thread will age at the same rate as the cotton fabric fibers in your quilt. It won’t leave lint in your machine like many other cotton threads. Each spool is shrink wrapped for protection.
