Yep…agreed. IMHO, anything water soluble needs to be stored as environmentally correct as possible. Too dry and it might break…too humid and it might melt. Just my thoughts. I live in hot and humid Florida with indoor A/C, so my water soluble thread is kept tightly sealed in a zippy bag, and inside another container with a snap on lid. My Solvy, vilene, etc., are kept in a tub with a snap on lid. My air/water erasable pens are kept tightly capped when I’m not drawing with them. Even with all that, I can’t be sure how much the water soluble products dry out from A/C, or absorb humidity while I am using them.

I second the opinion that it should be kept very dry.  I keep my spools in a smaller Ball canning jar. :)

I've used Superior Threads brand (they might have two weights, both worked well) with no issues.

Does anyone have issues with "washaway thread"??????????????  I'm somewhat frustrated; been using on a Hoop Sisters project; and thread keeps breaking.  None of the other threads I'm using are doing this?  This just just started happening a couple of days ago.  I'm using cut-away stabilizer and Hoop Sisters "shape"; I'm making a beach bag.

Curious to hear if anyone else has these issues and is there a "better brand" of  washaway thread????????? I'm not sure what brand I'm using.

As always, thanks so much for any feedback.
