Sulky Petites Embroidery Threads are even more fun than floss! One strand of Sulky thread is equivalent to 1 1/2 strands of embroidery floss -this means no more tedious splitting, separating and tangling! Just snap open the top to secure the loose end. This thread is ideal for felt applique and penny quilts but equally wonderful for hand embroidery -like cross stitch and kogin. Works well in your sewing machine too! Each spool includes 50 yards of cotton thread.
