I do a lot of charity sewing so am particular about my thread. This polyester thread will be used to embellish baby quilts for the OB unit and baby clothing that is donated out to the sick and needy as it is thicker than regular thread. I can even put three strands together and use it for embroidery thread to smock the gowns for the babies in the hospital. This thread is perfect for our charity projects. There are 12 colors - red, white, blue, brown, pink, grey, purple, yellow, black, peach, green and navy so we have all the colors we need to work with.
