This mercerized (silk-finished) cotton thread is perfect for sewing and quilting your finest creations. This pure cotton thread is made of 100% long staple, Egyptian cotton with the soft sheen of natural cotton. A natural fibre, it is gentle on the skin, and it feels soft, smooth and silk-like. This is a high-quality thread which boasts a luxuriously soft effect and has a supple feel. Through the mercerization process, Silk-Finish Cotton 50 reaches a high breaking point, high heat resistance, and has reduced shrinkage.


This thread is rated strength 50 - with 60 being the strongest. 

It is a heavyweight gauge thread and is suited to topstitching - whereas the 60 is a regular/fine gauge thread. 

We also stock thread rated at 60 in other colours.
