What You Get+-

These Sulky Petites spools of 12 wt. thread are my choice whenever I want a thicker thread.

When do I use this 12 wt thread?

  • When I embroider the faces on my dolls - either by hand or by machine
  • When I want the stitching on my applique quilts to have a thicker line - like faces and whiskers
  • When I do Big Stitch Hand Quilting
  • For any hand embroidery project where I don't want to use stranded thread - especially in the summer when I have gnarly garden hands that tend to snag easily on stranded thread

See the photos for details of this thread in use.

The thread is the same thickness as two strands of embroidery floss and has a lovely sheen to it. I love the little spools that it comes on - it's so tidy! Each spool has 50 yards of thread. (That works out to a little more than twice as much thread as a skein of DMC floss.)

You can use this thread for hand or machine work. For handwork I like to use a #8 embroidery needle. For machine work you'll want to use these topstitching needles.

Grab some pretty colors and start stitching! :-)
