The answer depends on the scale of the weight of the thread. In some cases this is less than 100, but in other cases the weight of 100 is a little different than 100. The scale on this website uses the same scale of weight as is used for many other manufacturers’. If the total weight of the thread is less than 100 gms then it is just one saffron thread. If it were more than 100 gms then it would be two saffron thread. If more than 200 gms were in one piece then it would be four, five, six or eight saffron thread. When you buy saffron thread the thread number is stamped right on the end of the threads so that it is easy to find. If the thread was made with the same brand of thread then you can assume the threads were made in the same factory. If the thread was made with separate brands of thread then it may make the thread of some other brand. (See below for more information about the quality, quality variations and production differences of saffron thread in many threads.) What are the ingredients in saffron thread?
Most common ingredients for saffron thread are saffron, saffron extract, beeswax or any other wax. If the thread has been heated it will change the colour to a darker coloured colour. As well as saffron, all the ingredients of the saffron thread are common and it is good practice to mix all the components together to make a nice and uniform appearance. The more common ingredients include bee’s wax, vegetable wax, coconut oil, talc, carnauba wax and polyethylene glycol. The amount of beeswax used in the manufacture of saffron thread is not very important as it is used in the thread in order to produce a fine, strong thread (the thread will stay strong even if the bees wax is removed so you have the choice to keep it in your thread, but in our opinion it is fine to go out of the thread and re-attach it later if you would like). We are not aware of any special needs of the thread when it comes to the ingredients used for saffron thread.
Some thread makers use the word ‘polyenylate’ to refer to a type of extract made by the extraction of animal fat. Bee’s wax and coconut oil are also used in some threads. We do not know whether, if used for thread in any thread, these ingredients cause any effect on the thread
