Cotton Thread


Browse our selection of cotton thread.

Cotton Thread has been used by sewers for hundreds of years for its natural softness and versatility as a sewing thread. Cotton threads are soft, with a natural look and feel ideal for sewing on natural fiber fabrics like cotton or linen. They also have some heat resistance which allows them to withstand ironing with no problem. Cotton Threads are not as flexible as other synthetic thread materials, so they are best when used with lighter, less coarse fabrics. Commonly used in quilting and patchwork, Cotton Threads are also excellent for basting, embroidery, blind stitching, buttonholes, and more. Some Cotton Threads are “Mercerized,” meaning they go through a process that helps them hold color exceptionally well and adds some smoothness to the thread’s finish.
