This gorgeous 8wt, 2-ply 100% long staple Egyptian cotton thread is double-gassed and mercerized, resulting in a wonderfully smooth and lustrous surface that allows the thread to glide beautifully through all types of fabrics and fibres. The thread’s tight twist creates beautifully firm stitches while its surface sheen produces a luxurious finish to embellishment stitchery. Offered in 100 different colours ranging from saturated solids to subtle tone-on-tone and random dyed contrasting variegates, Eleganza™ is a perfect match for your next hand work or embellishment project.
The process of double gassing involves burning off the lint from the thread two times, resulting in a much softer and cleaner finish.
