How to Use

Metallic Embroidery Spooled Thread can be used in many ways to enhance a needlework design.  Threads can be used right off the convenient spool or several strands can be combined to make a thicker thread.   Blending a metallic thread  with other DMC fibers is yet another way to add this specialty thread to your design.  Spooled metallics are great for couching DMC Memory Thread, for backstitching a design or even separated for delicate threadwork.
