Organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilisers, which means it is better for people and planet. This cotton is a long staple crop meaning it is smooth and less prone to breaking.
Organic cotton thread is particularly suitable for natural fabric garments, so that when you're washing (or later dyeing) your item, there isn't worry with high temperatures or discolouration.
The wooden reel that the thread comes on can be repurposed for your darning threads, or composted at home.
It's best to sew garments that use natural fibres with your organic cotton thread, as it helps in the washing process - and if you're looking to biodegrade your full garment in your home compost!
This thread will work on all domestic and industrial flat bed machines, but be cautious of your machine's tension as the tensile strength of cotton is lower than that of polyester - even though this is a long staple fibre.
All sorts of clothing, underwear and lingerie, crafts, embroidery.
