My top ten Thread Brands

My top ten Thread Brands

My top ten thread brands…..


I have worked with many threads and yarns in my life so far on a professional level and in private. I came across threads and yarns  the went straight in the bin to thread that I started to appreciate and to collect.

This post is a work in progress and and it started in January when I started to think about threads that I love and threads that I stay away from! Today I want to share with you my top ten threads to work with. These brands, are perfect for lace makers, crochet lovers, knitters, tatting friends and so much more….

The main reason for  creating this top ten was to show people who love to create Romanian Point Lace that there are many brands that you can try out to create wonderful lace.

Drum rolls! Here they are!












I want to thank those brands who supplied me with gorgeous threads and yarns for me to test! Thank you very much it, was a pleasure, to work with all of you and to introduce your products to the followers, and new readers who are interested to learn something new.

Do you have a favourite thread brand?

A while ago I wrote a blog post on Valdani thread…

The pieces that I designed using Romanian Point Lace as a technique are ready. I made a set of earrings, using two threads as a combination.

These threads are amazing for lace making and specially for Romanian Point Lace and Embroidery.

I worked with a fabulous rope yarn that was soft, fantastic to work into a scarf using the arm knitting technique and I had the pleasure to crochet using a free from crochet mixed with afghan crochet a snowflake flower motive.
