How many saffron threads would equal a standard-size sachet?

I'm making Palermo-style arancini which have saffron in the rice. The recipe calls for a sachet of saffron (presumably crushed?) per kilo of rice, but the saffron I have is in whole threads. Approximately how many threads would be the equivalent of a sachet that someone in Italy might have on hand? A sachet in Italy seems to be 100 to 125 mg, and I doubt my kitchen scale would be able to register such small amounts.
