Also great for beading, half-hitching, micro-macrame, cavandoli tapestry knotting, kumihimo and tassels. Colorfast with a high sheen.

Personal note - These spools are especially designed for tayloring, but they are great for anyone wanting a larger output. According to the manufacturer it is the exact same thread as the one on the cards, but there are a few differences: No creases on the thread on spools, whereas the one on cards has fold marks. The thread on the spools feels just a tad thinner and smoother than the thread on the cards. It might be due to the spooling process compressing the thread. The color palette is a lot smaller than what's available on cards. The main advantage is of course the price. One spool is the equivalent of 10 cards for a fraction of the cost.
