i have some vintage coats & clark’s tatting/crochet thread. i got it by mistake early last year, thinking it was knitting-sized, not realizing that size 70 is teeny-tiny. i have 6 full balls/skeins of it, 125 yards each.
links on ravelry for it include http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/coats--clarks-ont-tatting-crochet-size-70 and http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/jp-coats-tatting-cotton-size-70 and http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/jp-coats-tatting-crochet-size-70 .
does anyone know if it can be used for machine sewing, like to wind on a bobbin or spool? and/or does it work ok for double-strand knitting, like for reinforcing sock toes/heels?
it’s mercerized cotton, and boil-fast.
