invisible nylon threads

user-7764569 | Posted in Couture on

Can you sew  invisible nylon threads by hand with a hand needle?

    I can see no reason why you couldn't. It may tend to twist or not give you the desired stitch tension, so experiment to see how it works on your fabric.

    Of course, that is possible and no problem with this

    I have done this before, but it is not fun. The thread is invisible and has a different tension to it than regular sewing thread. Hopefully the project you have in mind is a small one.

    I would suggest using the extra-fine invisible thread that quilters use for machine quilting. The heavier chain store thread is too wiry for hand sewing. The fine type is not as easy to handle as regular cotton or polyester thread, but I have used it for small bits of hand sewing.

      Yes,that very thin spider-web like nylon thread can sew on sequins on a top,and it won;'t show up at all. You might do your sewing in a very well lighted place,as it helps to keep the stuff visible.
