Sue Spargo Eleganza Thread


Sue Spargo's Eleganza Perle cotton collection is designed to meet the specific needs of hand stitchers, embroiderers and embellishers. Passionate about stitching, Sue set out to design a product of utmost quality in collaboration with Wonderfil Specialty Threads. Eleganza is made from 100% Giza 88, the highest caliber extra long staple Egyptian cotton. Fibers spun with this fiber create a thread of extreme softness, strength and luster. An extra 15% twist has been incorporated into the design of Eleganza resulting in a thread of superior stability, uniformity and sewability. Eleganza is double gassed and mercerized to eliminate build up of lint and snub, largely enriching the appeal of stitchery. Sue has designed a bright, saturated color palette along with a unique line of variegates. Eleganza's collection of variegates contain extra short varigations in order to provide rapid color change on small scale designs. 

  • Original collection available in three weights: Size 8 (70 yard spool), Size 5 (40 yard spool), Size 3 (30 yard spool)
  • Original collection available in 90 colors: 36 solids, 54 variegates
