If you are having difficulties with "slick threads" or specialty threads, try using a handy net. Handy nets help keep threads from unwinding on their own while in use and the nets do NOT interfere with thread tension.
Handy nets are great to use on any thread even during storage times because the net prevents unruly unwinding but allows you to still see through them to keep your colors organized. Handy nets are clean, easy to use, reusable, inexpensive. Approx. 6 inches long. 1 dozen in the pkg. (Thread not included.)
These Handy Thread Nets may also be used on the smaller spool sized threads. Simply cut the net to your desired (spool) length and slip it over the spool.
