Embroidery Polyester 40WT Thread...... vs ..... Cotton 50WT Thread
Hello Quilt Friends..... A bit of re-learning for me today.
I rummaged --- or Estate Sale shopped at a quilter's closeout of all her stuff this AM.
Isacord Embroidery Thread, 5000M, 40W Polyester Thread. abt $9.00
my cost.... $2.00
A smaller weight number indicates a heavier thread
ISACORD is a polyester continuous thread that has a comparable shine to a rayon embroidery thread.
Polyester thread is nearly twice the strength of rayon thread
Can I use Isacord 40 for quilting?
Polyester embroidery thread
This 40 wt. thread is very thin, making it an excellent choice for free motion quilting designs that require a lot of travel stitching. Isacord is also very strong and able to take the high speed and intensity of machine quilting and embroidery.
