Rasant is a cotton covered poly core thread. It has good strength from the poly core and produces supple seams due to the natural cotton cover. It also has good abrasion resistance and high light-fastness and washability.
This is a lovely strong thread for most sewing including quilting. The polyester core makes it strong and the cotton outside makes it suitable for heirloom sewing.
Does not fluff up the inside of your sewing machine like some other brands do.
Also suitable for use on overlockers.
Available in 1000m spools.
