Also look up "wooly nylon". It's a thread used in sergers

I looked up "wooly nylon" and think I better check out what JoAnn has. I'm planning a trip to town and a stop there anyhow. It looks like it would be a lot less expensive than the other stuff made for the purpose. Maybe if I get some I'll have to get a serger to go with it. That would save me a lot! One thing leads to another. Such is life.
