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.
