Hi all. I hope the crochet ladies can help. And, I hope I can explain my problem. I've got a bag of bucilla wondersheen crochet and knitting cotton, mercerized. It is no longer being produced so I'm not sure how to size it for comparisons to modern thread. Is it a size 30 crochet thread or closer to a 10? 400 yards to a roll. Patterns recommend a size of thread but I don't know how to size this. I'm using it as laceweight. Is there a wraps per inch standard for crochet thread?
If my failing memory serves me correctly it is a size 10, maybe a little on the heavy side.
From what I remember, Bucilla Wondersheen is bedspread weight/size 10 cotton thread. Bucilla also made a version called Petite Wondersheen, which is size 20 cotton thread.
I think it is a Size 10 cotton thread
Thank you Laura, Terry and Gail. A 10 is what I needed. KP is a wonderful site. I can't skip a day.
