Heavy thread ~ Spagetti 12wt cotton by WonderFil
Individual spools are 400m. Set of eight colors are available in half-sizes (200m per spool) and in full-sizes (400m per spool).
These colors are solid with a slight sheen. Please remember that colors vary from one computer screen to another.
This beautiful, smooth, heavy decorative thread may be stitched through a machine's needle or by hand. It is tightly twisted and nearly lint-free so machines love it. In my classes I've seen all brands of machines stitch beautifully with this thread. It's amazing!

Tips for success:
Stitch slowly with a 100/16 topstitch needle and regular 50 or 60wt cotton thread in the bobbin. I try the 90/14 topstitch needle first because I prefer to poke the smallest hole possible but if that doesn't give good results I use the 100/16 topstitch needle. Top tension may need to be loosened (set to a lower number). Start with a straight stitch of 3.5mm in length and then experiment with various lengths/widths and stitch patterns to learn your preferences. Simple stitch patterns show off this thread the best!
