DMC Lights Effect Metallic Floss is made from polyester. It comes in skeins of 8 meter long with 6 strands which you can separate. As you will notice those individual strands are made up of a thin thread covered with a metallic shiny layer. Metallic threads tangle and snag easily.
Before stitching with your metallic floss, we strongly recommend you to thread your floss. Using bees wax, your floss will become smoother and it will glide easier through your fabric. Simply glide the floss through the bees wax holding the thread with one finger close to the wax and pulling gently with your other hand. Don’t pull to strong as this may damage your thread.
A little bit of bees wax will do the trick, after all you are not creating a candle :-).
