Rotten Tying Thread

Recommended Posts

Sometimes when thread weakens I find it's not the whole spool but only the top layers. Might try pulling out a bunch and see if the stuff underneath is still strong.

I have some Danville 6/0 in white that I have been having this problem with.  I got it with the kit I bought about 20 years ago.  Interestingly I have another spool of the same thread, but in black that I got in the same kit that I have no problems with.

Good idea about checking the under layers. I am happy this forum exists and y’all are part. BITD, I would break off the lighter threads and so I thought now maybe I was being too rough or jerky with it. Had I not taken a brake from my old passion, I might have used up this thread before it expired. I think I’ll replace these with some Waspi 140 unless there are better recommendations. (I should search).
