This is a 100% glazed cotton quilting thread by YLI. This is what I use when stitching the dolls facial features (eye lashes, eye brows...) as well as attaching the button/bead eyes. It's a heavier weight than regular sewing thread, so you'll have less breakage while stitching. Also, the glazed finish prevents tangling & provides excellent colorfastness. This is very important if you plan on staining your dolls after you've stitched on their faces....you don't want your black thread bleeding & staining the face.
BONUS: It comes on a nifty wooden spool so when you're done with the thread you can reuse it or 'prim it up' and display it next to your other primitive decor.
You will get a 400 yard spool in black.
