America's Best Rayon
Crochet Thread, put-up on 100 yd. balls, are $3.49 each
This crochet thread is
comparable to size 8 crochet cotton but I have interchanged it with
#10 as long as I got the correct gauge for #10. When I first
started working with this rayon thread it took some getting used to,
but I soon got the hang of it. You can get some really
interesting silky effects if you steam it after crocheting (I know
this sounds crazy, but it works--there are details in my books on how
to do this). This thread is used in many of the fabulous
Paradise Publications Crochet Collector Costumes. The company
that makes it, Elmore-Pisgah, formerly manufactured it under the Lily
Rayon Crochet Thread brand.
the thread company has closed after 40 yrs. in business. We have
sold out all the remaining stock of this thread that we have.
still have a bit of the other sizes of thread. Click on the
