You certainly had me stumped! I don't think we hear any of the phrases in embroidery. Interesting!! Thanks for teaching me something new.

I had heard the term mercerized before but didn't know what it meant. And I never heard the other to terms at all... Sewing threads are certainly a different breed of fiber!
