InvisaFil Thread is very fine 100 Weight 2 ply soft cottonized poly thread. It is excellent for hand or machine quilting and appliqué, bobbin thread and precise piecing.

InvisaFil is available in 30 colors on 2500m spools and Mini Packs of 6 x 400m spools.
InvisaFil has become a favorite with long armers and home sewing machine owners. They love it in the bobbin with a different thread in the needle or visa versa. They also use them in the bobbin and needle at the same time. They are soft yet incredibly strong—however not strong enough to cut fabrics—and can be ironed if necessary. Being very fine and having a matte (not shiny) finish, they virtually hide on any quilt. Perfect for any quilting stitch, appliqué, sewing, or anywhere you don't want the thread to show.
