Sku #: ITSPC1000
$Cdn 8.99 (~USD$7.01)  per spool
Aurifil’s Monofilament Thread is 100% Nylon. It is it the perfect choice for use whenever the stitches need to camouflage with the background of a project. Monofilament can be used as a top thread for many quilting techniques such as stitch-in-the-ditch, invisible machine appliqué, outlining, shaping and echoing appliqué, couching, and of course free motion quilting. The smoothness of the thread also makes it perfect for needle turn applique or EPP.

Hand/Needle Turn Appliqué, Attach Binding, Ladder Stitch, Machine Stitch in the Ditch, Invisible Seaming, Free Motion Quilting, Couching, Machine Appliqué, Outline Appliqué, Shape Appliqué, Echo Appliqué

Essence Monofilament Nylon Thread - Clear Essence Monofilament Nylon Thread - Clear
Sku #: 60067
$Cdn 8.99 (~USD$7.01)  per spool
Essence monofilament is a .004mm nylon thread; 1500yds/1375m spool.
Avoid the highest heat setting and quilts containing nylon monofilament thread will emerge from the wash/dry cycle intact. There should be no popped or melted stitches.
You should not use direct contact from an iron when using nylon or even polyester monofilament.
Thread nets are suggested for creating drag and tension, and for reducing the chances of the thread dropping down to the base of the spool while getting “hung-up” or “snagged”. From Fil-Tec.
