This past year I have mostly been using flora size 20 thread. I think it is a wonderful, strong, and colorful thread and it appeals to me on so many levels.
Last night I decided to tat with some size 70 thread and quickly remembered why I don't tat with the smaller threads too often. Twice in one motif the thread broke as I was closing a ring. It was so frustrating I chucked the whole project. Does anyone else have this happen? How do you combat it? Can anyone suggest some really nice, strong, slippery size 80, 70 tatting thread?
