DMC Light effects Embroidery floss gives your project a unique sparkle. Sold per skein of 8 meters, with 6 easily seperatable strands. This special floss is made with 100% polyester yarn.
This floss tangles easily. We therefor recommend to embroider with short pieces of thread at the same time, and to use the needle knot technique. It also helps to treat your floss with a bit of bees wax before you start stitching. Using bees wax helps to make the floss smoother.
