Superior Threads Vanish is now available in two weights: Vanish-Extra and Vanish-Lite.
Vanish is a water soluble thread that is excellent to use for machine and hand basting, trapunto, quilting, appliqué, heirloom, etc. Use "LITE" for lighter jobs and faster dissolving time. Use "EXTRA" for heavier jobs (requires longer dissolving time)
WARNING: Although a fun present for the prankster in your family, Vanish Threads are NOT for use in sewing swim wear. :)
