Pro Tip for punching with DMC embroidery floss

To get nice loops in your punch needle project it is crucial that your thread flows freely through your needle. So apart from working with the right needle size, you should avoid your thread to get tangled in all kinds of ways.

DMC embroidery floss comes in strands of 8 meters and they are nicely packaged with two labels. A label with the DMC logo on the top, and another label with the floss number at the bottom. On both sides you will find a thread end. Our pro tip is to pull your floss from the bottom side, and to remove the labels. We learned that doing it this way your floss will not get tangled while punching.
