Elastic thread for shirring, colour gold. Length of thread: 10m Size of spool: height 5.5cm, diametre 2cm. This thread is made from an elastane core wrapped with a cotton thread, a technique known as gimped thread. The natural fibres used in this thread enable it to be washed and ironed without losing elasticity. Attention: the silver and gold spools contain 10m of thread, all the others have 20m. Winding elastic threads is a delicate operation as the threads must be slightly tautened. This tautness is estimated at 20%. Available in 23 colours, this thread known as Lastex is from the Lebaufil brand, a French company specialising in elastic threads since 1946. It was taken over by Ets Toulemonde in December 2015. This product is MADEINFRANCE.
