This is a high-quality 3-core (3-ply) crochet cotton from Spain which glides through your fingers, resists splitting and is made from 100% mercerized Egyptian cotton.
While it is called crochet cotton, it is a very versatile thread which can be used for anything from crochet to knitting to lace-making to tatting. The very finest weights (80, 100) are very suitable for lace-making, while the heaviest weights (10, 20) would be suitable for creating very nice knitted lace. It is also ideal for that major tatting project.
Unlike with some cheaper brands, Fincrochet crochet cotton has a working stiffness to it which enables you to maintain a consistent tension in your work which you can achieve by feel as much as by sight. This means less wasted time and cotton - and a much neater and professional-looking product. Our staff love it!
