Would this be a suitable substitute for the tire/clover brand silk thread used in couture sewing for basting stitch lines? It would need to be thin & slippery enough to be removed after the seam is sewn w/ the machine.

Yes, that would be a very good application for this type of thread.

I like to use shell and mother of pearl buttons, and the holes have sharp edges that saw through my thread. Is silamide a good button thread?

Yes, and it tends to be more abrasion resistant.

This thread replaces silk thread used in the production on fine men's clothing. To use: Break off the end of the cardboard envelope. Cut the exposed loop end of the skein and pull out 1 strand of thread at a time for hand sewing.

Good thread but too much in a pack

I do like the finish on this thread, the fact that it remains straight and smooth with no spool, and the precut pieces at an useful length. For the little I hand sew however, the packages are far too much in both quantity and price. 200m each would be more than enough for me, or a sample variety pack.

Thank you for your review.

Its nice

Its nice but since the picture was not there I just had to trust what steel grey would look like. Its not quite the colour I wanted but it is what it is.
