Sue Spargo’s Eleganza Wagon Wheel
Sue Spargo’s Eleganza Wagon Wheel cotton collection is designed to meet the specific needs of hand stitchers, embroiderers and embellishers. Passionate about stitching, Sue set out to design a product of utmost quality in collaboration with Wonderfil Specialty Threads.
Eleganza is made from 100% Giza 88, the highest calibre extra long staple Egyptian cotton. Fibres spun with this fibre create a thread of extreme softness, strength and lustre. An extra 15% twist has been incorporated into the design of Eleganza resulting in a thread of superior stability, uniformity and sewability. Eleganza is double gassed and mercerised to eliminate build up of lint and snub, largely enriching the appeal of stitchery.
Sue has designed a bright, saturated colour palette along with a unique line of variegated threads. Eleganza’s collection of variegates contain extra short variegation’s in order to provide rapid colour change on small-scale designs. Sue expanded the line to include the primitive range which are softer colours to round out the range
Cotton perle embroidery threads, although generally softer and shinier than crochet cotton, may be used in crochet patterns as follows:- #5 perle is a little thicker than #10 crochet cotton but is suitable for most #10 cotton patterns; #8 perle is about the same as #20 crochet cotton.
Constantine Quilts has chosen to stock Sue’s complete ‘Primitive’ range for your sewing enjoyment.
