Thread: Mettler 60-weight cotton - Moss Green #0882

Mettler 60-weight 2-ply silk finish cotton thread is a wonderful thread for hand and machine applique, fine sewing, and machine embroidery.  Some quilters use it for piecing because there is less bulk at the seams; the manufacturer recommends a size 70 or 80 needle for machine stitching.  Mercerized to add strength and color-fastness, it has a high breaking resistance, shrinkage control, and ironing capabilities.  The spools contain 220 yards of thread.

The Moss Green #0882 thread color is a medium yellow green that leans toward a darker, richer color, probably more like my view of a kiwi fruit.  When I use the term yellow-green, it is meant to distinguish it from the blue-greens or forest greens -- it is not really a "yellow" green.  It is another good mid-range color that can be used for most applique.
