YLI Soft Touch
Very fine cotton sewing, piecing and bobbin thread from YLI
Colour 023 Light Brown
YLI Soft Touch is a low-lint, 60-weight, 2-ply mercerised long-staple Egyptian cotton thread. It is strong yet has a superb snap point.
YLI introduced Soft Touch originally as a wonderful bobbin thread that balances well against upper threads such as YLI Machine Quilting, Aurifil Mako 40 and Superior King Tut. It has quickly gained popularity as a great piecing thread because, being so fine, it adds very little bulk to the seams. It is also wonderful for both hand and machine appliqué, heirloom quilting, lace making and fine embroidery.
For best results when machine piecing, we recommend using a Schmetz Microtex 70 needle. For hand appliqué, we recommend a John James Sharp needle, size 11.
Available on 225m (250 yd) spools.
