Glossy variegated thread
The Fil Au Chinois polyester fancy thread comes in shaded colours or interesting blends of contrasting colours, perfect for patchwork and decorative embroidery. This 100% polyester thread is a filament yarn. Whether natural, artificial or synthetic, yarns are either spun or filament. With the exception of silk, most natural fibres are spun. They have to go through numerous treatments before being transformed into thread. However, polyester being a synthetic fibre can be treated by filament. The liquid base matter is passed through a channel (forming the thread) and once cooled forms a continuous fibre.
