This is the perfect answer to those little piles of thread that are always around when you're doing your needlework! As you cut off that extra piece of thread, you just put it in this little catcher and your work area stays neat. It's made of cotton material and has no stiff surfaces so catcher will stay wherever it's put. Each side of the triangle is 4 1/2 inches long at the base and the catcher is 2" high. Machine wash and dry. It was made in my smoke free home. Thank you for looking.
