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. In fly fishing, it adds a little weight to bodies and heads without adding too much bulk. Available on 11 meter (12 yard) spools.
