$ 18.67

Vendor Scanfil

This unique thread is our TEX 40 natural thread that has been dyed with natural vegetable dyes by master dyer Kat Quigley.  

Tex 40 is a multi-purpose thread that is strong and smooth. Sturdier than our other multi-purpose threads we recommend Tex 40 for sportswear, home decor, dolls and other products that will take some wear and tear. It can also be used for embroidery.  If a coating is required for hand sewing, use beeswax.
