Cotton+Steel Thread by Sulky is a 50 wt. cotton thread, 660 yards per spool, made from 100% Egyptian grown cotton, spun in Egypt and dyed in Italy. Cotton+Steel founder Melody Miller worked closely with Sulky to develop this thread from the ground up, creating a high-quality thread in 100 vibrant shades. It is glossy, luscious and perfect for everything from piecing to quilting to garment sewing. The cheeky mix and match labels and colorful spools are a major dose of eye candy for your sewing room. We love this thread for English paper-piecing and other types of hand-sewing! It threads nicely through the very small eye of a Milliners needle and it doesn't tangle!
