This is the premier metallic thread for cross stitching because it is so soft and easy to use. Stitch with Very Fine (#4) Braid in Cross Stitch (16-18 ct) and Needlepoint (for light details on 18-30 ct). It's also nice and thin for crazy quilting, scrapbooking and card making embellishments.
Kreinik Braids are hand or machine washable and dry cleanable. Cool water is recommended. Do not use bleach. They can also be tumble-dried on low setting. When ironing a finished piece containing Kreinik Braids, do not iron directly on the thread; use a cloth, and do not use steam.
