After many years in development, we now have a variegated (multi-colored) polyester thread that has the high sheen of trilobal and the strength of filament polyester. It is a high tenacity (strength), high sheen trilobal filament polyester called Fantastico. Fantastico is not only gorgeous, it is unlike any other thread. Here’s why: Fantastico consists of four main strands of thread. Each of these four main strands consist of 48 high strength micro-strands. Two 48 micro-strands are twisted together into Set A. Another two sets of 48 micro-strands are twisted together into Set B. Then Set A (total 96 micro-strands) and Set B (total 96 micro-strands) are twisted together to make the final product. Fantastico is a thread made of 192 high-sheen, high strength micro-strands. The result is a strong, bright, beautiful 40 wt. thread ideal for quilting and embroidery.
Spools available in 81 colors (many more on the way!)
Cones available in 115 colors (many more on the way!)
Ideal for embroidery and quilting.
High-sheen allows the thread to reflect color vividly and clearly.
Precision-dyed one-inch color change.
Unlike many other high-tenacity trilobal polyesters, Fantastico is 'heat set' in processing which eliminates shrinkage.
Fantastico consists of 48 micro filaments x 4 ply (2 ply x 2 ply), for a total of 192 micro filaments resulting in spectacular sheen and strength.
