Cotton Thread


Missouri Star 50wt Double Mercerized Egyptian Cotton Thread is versatile: strong enough for hand quilting, but pliable and smooth for machine quilting.

Double Mercerized means that it has been specially processed to increase its strength and luster, which also allows the thread to absorb more color, infusing it with bright, colorfast dye that will last.

Polyester Thread


Trilobal Polyester Thread has a unique structure: three filaments are plied together in multiple continuous strands, giving it greater strength and shine—and it won’t form lint like other threads.

This versatile thread also allows you to create more uniform stitches due to its tenacity and low stretching quality, practically eliminating thread breakage, making it perfect for machine embroidery.

The box includes three trays that hold 10 spools each — that’s 30 spools in one compact unit! It even comes with a convenient hinged snap lid and handy carrying handle.
