Kogin thread 18m skein, in shade #362 ice blue. This is a matte, six strand cotton, slightly thicker than standard 6 strand embroidery cottons. The threads separate slightly in the stitch, to give excellent fabric coverage for kogin. Thread may be split and recombined which can make it easier to stitch without twisting. Also ideal for other embroidery where a matte thread is required, using one, two or more of the split strands.
Suitable for use for kogin on Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. 20 count linen and 18 count cotton kogin fabrics, and other 18 and 20 count evenweaves.
Kogin needles - use either Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. kogin needles 2 pack or cross stitch needles.

#362 ice blue kogin thread 18m
Kogin threads skeins have to be opened out before use. Slide of the skein band first. You will find all the thread is tied together at one point. Cut through the skein at the knot, so all the threads are cut (you'll find these are the ideal length for stitching doubled). Push all the thread through the skein band, and then plait the thread loosely. Pull out each thread as you need it from the loop end of the plait, not the 'fringed' end. This saves time trying to wind the thread into a ball, keeps it tidy and you know the thread shade number if you need to re order.
