Wonderfil designed this thread with hand wool appliqué in mind. Ellana™ is a 28wt, 2-ply, 50/50 Merino wool/acrylic blend. The wool provides a rich colour palette and soft loft, while the acrylic gives the thread strength. It blends smoothly into the edges of wool applique shapes, resulting an almost invisible whipstitch.
Ellana™ is fray resistant and contains significantly less fuzz. Its soft loft is lovely when used for hand embroidery. I have not tried it, but I have heard from reliable sources that this thread can be used in your sewing machine for embroidery and machine quilting.
Each spool holds 70 yards of thread.
