Olympus Threads has come up with a gorgeous new cordonnet thread specifically for tatting with. Available in 10g balls of a variety of colours. One 10g ball contains about 40m of thread. This thread tats up beautifully, and is nice and thick for those with limited eyesight, and will work well for projects where you want to see the larger stitches. Closest in thickness to about a size 5 pearl cotton.
