thread size

Recommended Posts

I saw a size 5 thread in Wal Mart.  It looks about the same as #10 but not so tight a twist.  Would this make up the same as #10, by using the same size hook?  Also, an Italian designer uses #8 with a 2.50 hook in some of her things.  I have not seen this size thread, but I don't go around much.

Thanks, Louise

I bought some of those.  They work up a slight bit larger, but I think you could adapt with different sizes of hooks.

No.  Size 5 and 10 will not work up the same even if you use the same size hook.  Trying to use a hook for #10 thread on a #5 thread will be an exercise in frustration.

Thanks for the input.  I may try a ball since there are more colors than the other brand, and I think it is the same price.  Since all I do are doll clothes ,maybe I can work around it.
