A & E has been making thread and yarn since 1891.  At the request of quilting enthusiasts they have developed this product specifically for machine quilters.  Made from 100% long staple cotton, it is 3 ply, ct 42 thread, with a tex rating of 40.  It will fill the needs of those who want 100% cotton with enough tensile strength to stand up to the demands of quilting machines' high speed, multi-directional sewing.  Mercerizing yields benefits including smoother thread, higher sheen, less fuzz and lint, and improved sewability.
