This thread is a pleasure to work with and the stitches are nearly invisible in my applique. Plus it shipped crazy fast!
I bought this thread on the advice of a YouTube video on back basting needle turn appliqué. It is a lovely fine strong thread. I’m still learning but I can see how with practice my stitches will be virtually invisible despite using neutral thread instead of matching colors.
The only thing you have to watch for is, due to the thread being so fine and smooth, it can slip easily out of the eye of the needle easily. I’ve learned to watch for that as my thread gets short.
I loved the color selection and shine of this silk threads! The platisc container was a plus I was not expecting, perfect for keeping tidy in my workspace.
