Specialty Threads

Eleganza Variegated Thread

Eleganza's short variegations will give motion to your piece and are especially eye-catching

Eleganza's short variegations will give motion to your piece and are especially eye-catching when used for Wrapped Stitches such as Bullion Knots or Drizzle Stitches, due to the frequent color change. 

Eleganza Solid #8 Thread

Eleganza Pearl Cotton makes for a beautiful embellishment thread.  The impeccable quality of this thread results in a smooth, lustrous surface allowing the thread to glide smoothly through all types of fibers

Primitive Eleganza Thread

The Primitive Collection of the Sue Spargo Eleganza color line introduces a variety of subtle earth tones and understated colors.

Wonderfil Eleganza Thread

Eleganza's tight twist creates beautiful firm and textural stitches and its reflective surface gives a luxurious luster to embellishment stitchery
