What do I use this thread for?
I inherited a lot of fabric and other sewing supplies from my grandma recently. I have this pretty multicolored thread, but I, for the life of me, have no idea what it's supposed to be used for or how I could incorporate it in a project. Any help is appreciated.

It's a novelty knitting yarn and these eyelash and other novelty yarns were quite a fad 10+ years ago. They are very difficult to knot on their own and work best when combined with a plain color basic worsted weight yarn. When combined with a solid color it adds color and visual interest to the finished piece. The other option is to couch it on a base fabric using a sewing machine. It makes a nice whole- cloth embellishment. It was tricky to handle and use and that limited the popularity of these novelty yarns

You didn't say what sort of thread it , I would take to a craft shop and ask there what it is for.
