    I found a way to keep double thread from tangling, don't know where I learned it.

    It's simple: knot each thread separately. It's worked for me for years.

    I also use a blind stitch with double thread. It seems logical that it would be stronger.

    I use double thread also. I really don't have room or need so many different color of thread spools, so I purchase embroidery thread in the color to match.
