WOW! We like this thread even better than Rainbows. Its a bit thicker and much stronger so even people new to machine quilting will be able to run this gorgeous thread at high speeds through their long arm machines.

  • Ideal for embroidery and quilting.
  • High-sheen allows the thread to reflect colour vividly and clearly.
  • Unlike many other high-tenacity trilobal polyesters, Fantastico is ‘heat set’ in processing which eliminates shrinkage.
  • Fantastico consists of 48_micro filaments_x 4 ply (2 ply x 2 ply), for a total of 192 micro filaments, resulting in spectacular sheen and strength.

Product Description

After many years in development, we now have a variegated (multi-coloured) polyester thread that has the high sheen of tri-lobal and the strength of filament polyester. It is a high tenacity (strength), high sheen tri-lobal filament polyester called Fantastico.

Fantastico is not only gorgeous, it is unlike any other thread. Here’s why:

Fantastico consists of four main strands of thread. Each of these four main strands consist of 48 high strength micro-strands. Two 48 micro-strands are twisted together into Set A. Another two sets of 48 micro-strands are twisted together into Set B. Then Set A (total 96 micro-strands) and Set B (total 96 micro-strands) are twisted together to make the final product. Fantastico is a thread made of 192 high-sheen, high strength micro-strands.

The result is a strong, bright, beautiful 40 wt. thread ideal for quilting and embroidery.
