Rasant '120' thread is made in Germany, and subject to high quality standards. It has long been a favourite for both quilters and designers, but in more recent years, home sewists are discovering and enjoying this fine but robust thread.
While high quality polyester thread is strong, it can cut through those softer, natural fibres over time. If you sew mostly natural fibres then a natural fibre thread is recommended, but 100% cotton sewing threads are often not robust enough.
Rasant 120 strikes the perfect balance as it has a polyester core and a cotton outer layer. It’s a 50% polyester / 50% cotton 'core spun thread'. It has the look and feel of a traditional cotton thread, with the strength and flexibility of a blended fibre.
You will be pleased with the 1000 metres (not the usual 100 metres), the low lint level, fine texture, and durability. It is a superior choice for overlocking. Create rainbow finishing, and use a different colour for each overlocker spool.
