Another great pack of specially selected Madeira metallic threads for hand embroiderers.
We are always on the lookout for new threads, especially to avoid the problem of tarnishing in goldwork embroideries.
Madeira have a fantastic range of metallic threads which can bring goldwork into the 21st century and the Heavy Metals range is marketed as the “The most hard wearing metallic thread in the world”.
These polyester threads are designed for machine embroidery but lend themselves perfectly to hand embroidery too and have a lustrous satin finish once sewn.
Madeira Heavy metal threads are even washable at high temperature and are resistant to bleach and chlorine. They are suitable for fabrics intended for heavy use and frequent washing
However, the hand embroiderer is unlikely to need 200m reels and we all want every colour in our stash, so the Maire Curtis studio have created a handy pack of 8 x 20m Madeira Heavy Metal metallics.
The threads are presented in our specially designed pack for ease of storage and protection.
Pack size: 8 x 20m each (approx).
1 each: Pewter (Black Pearl), Alumimium, Silver, Gold 34, Gold 37, Gold 33, Rose Gold and Copper.
To get the best from metallic threads when hand embroidering, use a shorter length and high quality needles.
