So over the past few months you have been through most of the rooms in our Crochet Australia building. Last but not least is the thread room, (doily thread that is). Put your sunnies on when you enter as the colours will take your breath away.
This room comprises of all the threads from the finest #100 in white and ecru in the Finca and Cordonnet brands up to the thicker size 5 in the Traditions. Texture plays an important part in the beauty of crochet. The finer mercerised threads (#100, #80 or #60) are more effective for delicate designs used for tablecloths, doilies and edges. However for some of us, if seeing and grasping the thread is a little challenging, work in a larger thread such as #10. The crocheted items will be larger so this will have to be taken into account. Also consider that different brands or colours of the same size thread may vary in thickness.
