Gloving thread is a waxed cotton, n°120, both fine and solid. As the name states, it was used in the past for sewing and repairing gloves. Uses have changed, but the name remains the same. Nowadays, gloving thread is used for patchwork and appliqué hand stitching. Gloving Thread can also be used for very fine cross stitch. It is quite stiff, making it pleasant to use. Here you can see one page from the Sajou albums stitched on a linen fabric with 12 threads per centimetre.
