The natural white tacking thread is an easily breakable thread for basting textiles. If can be used to baste fabrics together temporarily for trying on, instead of holding them together with pins. In a second step the fabric can be pinned and finally the garment can be worked. When the work is completed, the tacking thread is simply removed from the completed seam. It is made from 100% cotton and can easily be unpicked, because of its low tensile strength. The basting thread is available in 200 m length on a plastic roll.
