Image - Thread Chizimi Shrinking Thread
Chizimi is a special polyester thread that sews like regular thread until it is exposed to steam. Then it shrinks 30% to create beautiful shirred puckers and gathers. You can use Chizimi in the bobbin only, or both the bobbin and as your top thread.

Incredible Shrinking Thread

"What a great way to add texture to any sewing project. This special polyester thread sews like normal sewing thread but when steam is applied using a steam iron, something magical happens! The incredible shrinking thread shrinks about 30%, leaving behind a beautiful shirred effect, similar to smocking! The thread can be used by embroiderers, quilters, and home artists on any fabric although lightweight fabrics work best, such as silk, chiffon, organza, soft knits, and even cotton quilting fabrics, handkerchief linen and wool crepe. Quilters use it in the top and bobbin thread and sew a straight or meandering line or stripple and watch the texture, dimension and shape appear! Machine washable."

This thread will shrink after steaming with a steamer or a hand iron. Do Not Touch Iron To Thread. Once the thread is set, it is permanent. For best results, use also in the bobbin. Sew, Heat, Shrink.
