DD1 has ripped her black (acid etched, I suspect top) in several places taking it off.

I could suspect it's faulty, but I haven't got a receipt.

Anyhow I want to have a go at mean sing it and need some incredibly fine thread.

Mending it (I wish auto correct didn't randomly split words)

Would black embroidery silk work - there are, from memory, 6 threads. If you used just 1 of them, would that be fine enough?

Sadly no, I'm after something even finer than that.

Invisible thread might work

I think I have some; it is glace cotton and spiderweb fine. It came from the skip when Norman Hartnell's salon was cleared out in the early '90's.

will let you know

right; have located the thread is lustrous and very fine. I will wrap some round a bit of cardboard as i don't want to part with the bobbin <sentimental>. Pm me your address Nocomet and I'll bung it in the post for you

have just been doing a bit of research on the thread and it dates from about 1880!
