Vanish is a water soluble thread for machine and hand basting, trapunto, and other uses. It is available in two weights (thicknesses), Vanish-Extra and Vanish-Lite. Both are available on spools and mini cones. Store Vanish in a resealable bag in a dry place. For fastest results, use Vanish in both the top and bottom.
- Vanish-Extra is recommended for commercial and longarm machines.
- Stronger than Vanish-Lite and can handle the stress from high-speed machines.
- Can be used as a top thread and or bottom thread.
- Vanish-Extra requires soaking to dissolve.
- Depending on the stitch density, gently massaging the thread helps it dissolve more quickly.
