Is there a technique for unraveling the thread from the cardboard packaging without getting it tangled?

Yes, you break off the end of the cardboard envelope which will expose the thread loop. Take a pair of scissors and simply cut the loop of thread. Then you can pull each stand out individually.

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.

Absolutely love!

I've been using this thread for a few years now at our college costume shop and decided to get some for myself at home. This is the best head sewing thread ever! it doesn't fray, it's easy to thread, and it's very durable. This is the only hand thread I use!

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.
