Our Cotton Mending Thread is a marvelous little companion for repairing holes, sewing on buttons, tacking hems, and all your other mending needs! Each packet includes 290 low-lint cotton sewing threads in 27 colors, all woven together in a beautiful plait. To use, you simply pull a single thread from either end, and it slips right out, ready to use. Each thread is approximately 19 inches long, and each package measures 2 x 7 inches and also includes a sewing needle and needle threader... Wonderful!
