Blue 209 - 30 Wt. Silk Thread (Made in Japan)

30 wt. 100% silk spooled thread from Japan in Blue 209.This smooth, three-ply, monofilament, 30 weight silk top-stitching thread is the perfect thread for machine or hand sewing. Some people prefer this instead of the heavier carded buttonhole twist for buttonholes, and of course it is ideal for machine-made buttonholes. This is a beautiful thread to utilize when one wants to emphasize a design detail with a bold line of stitching. It is pliant, has a deep lustrous sheen, and is an amazing pleasure to sew with.

There are 54 yards/50 meters per spool.
