Add some sparkle to your project with DMC Light Effects embroidery floss. This metallic is a polyester/viscose blend that glimmers with a metallic shimmer. Like its cotton counterpart, the metallic floss is made up of 6 strands that are divisible, meaning depending on the fabric you are stitching on, you can separate the strands to use what you need. When stitching on 14-count Aida or 28-count linen, two strands of metallic floss usually provides the right coverage.
Use it on its own, or combine it with cotton embroidery floss for a subtle shine. For tips on working with metallic thread, see this blog post.
DMC Light Effects Thread can be washed in lukewarm water (30° C/86 °F) with a mild detergent. Don't bleach. Wrap it in a towel after washing so that it may absorb the excess water. Dry flat. For pieces that can be dry cleaned, any dry cleaning solvent will do except for trichloroethylene.
