Take a piece of small diameter dowel rod and measure off a convenient distance.  I use 1/4in.  Place marks at the beginning and end of the marked distance.  Wrap the kit provided thread around the dowel.  Count the number of turns between the two marks.  Divide the marked distance by the number of turns to determine the diameter of the thread.
