Bottom Line

Choosing thread colours is a complicated process. Neutral colors are subtle, blend well, and do not compete. They often have a chameleon-like quality which allows them to change or blend with surrounding colours. Neutral colours put the focus on other colours. Although neutral colours are often described as blacks, whites, grays, and browns, this list is not complete. Neutral colours can exist in every colour group including reds, yellows, greens, blues, and purples.

The Bottom Line thread contains excellent examples of neutral colours. This thread is an extra fine thread and is suitable for quilting, applique, binding, bobbin thread, top thread, and detail embroidery. In many of these applications, a blending or neutral colour is preferred. If the bobbin thread pulls through and is slightly visible on the top, a neutral colour bobbin thread will blend and it will not be seen. If the desired quilting effect is to blend the thread in order to accent the stitching, a neutral colour will do this. The original 25 colours of The Bottom Line were chosen for their neutral properties. For example, the red colour appears rather dark by itself; however, when a single strand is put against other medium to dark red colours, the thread almost disappears. The silver colour looks almost semi- transparent and blends beautifully when it is held up to almost any colour of fabric. All of the original 25 colours of The Bottom Line are neutral shades and blend beautifully within their respective colour groups.
