YLI Soft Touch Thread 250yds

Introduced initially as a beautiful bobbin thread, Soft Touch has quickly gained popularity as a great piecing thread and is wonderful when used in applique. It is also an excellent heirloom thread and can be used in lace making and fine embroidery. 

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. 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.

YLI Soft Touch 250 yds is available in 28 colours.

Soft Touch small spools are sold in multiples of 5.
