Made in the US from certified organic cotton and developed in compliance with the new Global Organic Textile Standards, this is the best heavy-duty organic cotton thread we've ever seen. Created from a collaboration between the YLI Thread folks and our friends at The Fiberactive Quilt Company (who also dye our batik wide-width sateen fabrics), it's produced using methods based on emerging Domestic Fair Trade standards.
These large cones (about 7 inches high) have 6500 yards of natural-colored thread designed for heavy-duty machine use (you can use it for hand-sewing, of course, but it'll more than stand up to the rigors of machinework too!). We're thrilled to offer this 24/3 organic thread, and have been enjoying working with it. Each cone weighs about a pound.
This thread is available in smaller-sized cones as well as wholesale for our business customers. We do encourage you to buy as large a cone as you think you might need, as the thread is wound around a plastic center and the larger sizes use less plastic per yard of thread.
