Filaine thread produces a stitch that mimics vintage handwork, with a nubby textured feel and appearance. The 12 wt. 100% acrylic thread is available in a wide range of colors, with a high tear and rub resistance. Use it for woolens or knits, denim, canvas, or cotton fabrics, to showcase vintage style embroideries by hand or machine, brushed embroidery designs to mimic real fur, pronounced topstitching, and big-stitch quilting. Oeko-Tex certified. Easier, faster, and more fun than floss, one strand of 12 Wt. Filaine Petites equals two strands of the typical embroidery floss!
