Sperior Threads Handy NetsSuperior Threads Handy Nets

Handy Nets are made from loosely-knit netting and are placed over cones to prevent thread from sliding down the cone. Wrap a net around a cone of thread while in use, to help keep the thread unwinding smoothly. Leave the net in place when storing thread to prevent tangling. Handy Nets are recommended for smooth and delicate threads such as metallics, trilobal polyesters, MonoPoly, and other threads. Using a Handy Net while embroidering, sewing, serging, or quilting, helps your thread unwind evenly and help reduce snags.
