KING TUT QUILTING THREAD
Cotton quilting thread from Superior Threads
968 - Fig: Tone-on-tone Medium Sage
King Tut thread is one of the best ranges of variegated threads available in the UK. It is low in lint which means it tangles less when used for hand quilting. It also generates less fluff in the bobbin and breaks less when used for machine stitching.
It is a 40-weight/3-ply thread made from long-staple Egyptian cotton. It is thick enough to be decoratively visible on top of the fabric rather than sinking in to the fabric as heirloom-weight threads do. But it is still thin enough to ride very easily through the needle and thread mechanisms of the sewing machine.
All the King Tut variegated colors have a precise one-inch color change interval.
Superior King Tut is suitable for hand or machine quilting. For best results when machine quilting, use with a Schmetz Topstitch 90 or Quilting 90 needle. We recommend using Superior Masterpiece, YLI Soft Touch or Aurifil Mako 50 thread in the bobbin. For hand quilting, use a Size 9 Quilting needle or a Size 10 Big Eye Quilting Needle.
Available in 455m (500 yd) spools.
