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!

Performance thread …. Introducing a brand from Bulgaria

 

Have you heard of Performance? If not you can find out more about this beautiful company here Coming from Eastern Europe I grew up with it and love it. They have an amazing colourful range that covers lace makers, knitting enthusiasts, crochet lovers and tatting junkies….. It is also perfect for creating Romanian Point Lace.

The quality is amazing and very fine. You find threads in almost all sizes and to me it can compete with the big brands like DMC. It is a fracture of the price but you do not feel cuts in the quality.

To create Romanian Point Lace or Irish Crochet lace I recommend Cotton legacy Classy Cotton , Cotton FreedomCotton Precious ( traditionally it can be used for Romanian Point Lace !) and Cotton Harmony

If you never worked with this brand before you should give it a go! It;s really a great brand. I am not paid by Performance to write that I am testing threads and the threads that I love I write about. This one will definitely go into my top ten threads to work with.

Most skeins come in 50 gr and 100 gr sizes from this company. I have not seen these in shops here in Australia or in the US where I was living for a while, but you can purchase it direct form the source.
