I carry select colors of Sulky "Blendables" thread in 30 wt long staple cotton that pair nicely with my hand-dyed clothesline
for making fabric bowls. This thread is a wonderful blend of different colors with random color changes every 2.5 to 5 inches. It looks terrific with wrapped clothesline
Pick colors that blend or contrast with your wrapped or dyed clothesline. Live on the wild side and pick one color for the bobbin and a different color for the top. Go totally crazy and forget the dyed clothesline all together and stitch plain white clothesline with your favorite colored thread!
Regardless of the image size, all spools are 500 yards unless noted otherwise.
Use a 90/100 needle for best results. The tighter the zigzag the stiffer (better) the bowl. Wrap 6 or 7 bobbins before you start sewing a medium or large bowl. Get at least two 500-yard spools per large fabric bowl.
