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.
