Half-Price Black and White Mixed Nylon or Polyester

This thread came to us in giant cartons called gaylords. It had no labeling, was unwrapped, and the outer layers of some spools were grimy.  We have taken the best of this thread, identified its thickness, bagged, and labeled. Unfortunately, it is too time consuming and slightly dangerous to tell if its nylon or polyester. Instead, we are selling it at half-price


8 Ounces $7

12 Ounces $9

16 Ounces $12

32 Ounces $18
