Thread For A Tryout

    I keep seeing and hearing about this one brand of thread, King Tut, by Superior Threads. Since it seems several people are enamored of it, I decided to order some and test it myself. I have not quite decided what to do with it, but I do have an idea. I ordered 5 spools of 500 yards. I figured that a few colors would not be a bad thing and would let me see how it runs in the color variants.
    When I went to the Superior Threads website, I chose King Tut and was amazed at the colors. There are 135 colors. The first 100 make up the "Egyptian" theme colors. That is inventive, to say the least. One color I have little of is browns. I got Alabaster, Cedars, Sahara Shadows, Sahara Desert, and Sphinx. From creams to browns. This should be a good mix.

What am I going to do with it? I am not sure, but I did just sign on for a round robin on Craftree, so I may just use it for that. I have tried a few rings and chains already. It seems to tat well, pull smoothly and it is strong. I will tell more after I give it a proper workout. Oh, by the way, you can also get the first 100 colors as a set for about $800. Order one for me too. Thanks.

  1. I love tatting with King Tut! I tend to go for the blues, greens, and purples. I do have to be careful when tatting with it. Mistakes can be difficult to get out, not because of the thread, but because of my eyesight!
