Have you ever walked into a neighborhood quilt shop that had a full wall of all the colors of Isacord threads? It takes your breath away to see all the brilliant spools of color in one glance. It’s stunning! So when I start to check off supplies that I will need for my next embroidery project, selecting the Isacord colors is always my favorite thing to do.
Isacord has a selection of 423 solid colors along with 27 variegated colors to choose from. The spools come in two sizes; 1000m and 5000m lengths. Both sizes feature a unique snap down base for clean and easy storage. Say goodbye to those loose thread ends that drive you crazy!
Isacord thread is also proven to be 10% stronger and shrinks 75% less than any other Polyester embroidery thread sold in the marketplace. There is no mistake that this thread has been engineered from the finest raw materials to provide just the right amount of elasticity to allow for high speed running without looping or puckering. And, you’ll experience pure joy when there is no thread breakage during the stitch out of any machine embroidery designs.
My 2015 goal is to collect two spools of each Isacord thread color so I can have my own personal Isacord “wall of color”. I’m sure my “wall of color” will keep me inspired and, an added benefit is that I’ll always have the colors I need on hand.
What’s your favorite Isacord color?
