Mundial thread snips are lightweight and durable with comfortable plastic handles, designed for fast removal of stray threads at seam ends, ideal for use at sewing machines or finishing stations. Blades are short but sharp whilst handles are sprung to automatically open again after each cut to reduce user fatigue. Perfect for sewing, dressmaking, tailoring, adjusting, cutting thread, making button holes and other uses. Also suitable for use in the garden - trimming, deadheading and shaping topiary and bonsai trees. Ideal to keep in sewing boxes or tool kits.
