    I don't know if you in Germany now.......but if you can't find any thread..........while doing my CQ witches had my avatar, I laid some kona black fabric on my patio. I sprayed with bleach.......thinking I would get some white/gray areas. To my surprise I got orange areas. So I was wondering what would happen if you tried bleaching some black thread.........just a thought.........calla

    I would not bleach it...you would have to use anti chlor to stop the bleaching process and the threads would need to be washed, etc..

    superior and connecting threads offer many variegated threads!
