Tex 10 Wt 100 100% Filament Silk from Japan
Wonderful for hand applique - it's so fine, it just disappears into the fabric. Silk makes you look like an even better appliquer than you already are!
Tex 18 Wt 50 60/2 100% Egyptian Extra Long Staple Cotton, G&M
Soft Touch is a very fine cotton.
That makes it great for piecing - especially if you are making sharp points or working where several blocks come together. We offer neutral colors in several put-ups for piecers. Compare to Aurifil or Mettler 50wt. We bet you'll like ours best!...

Tex 30 Wt 35 40/2 Glazed Cotton
