DMC Light Effects embroidery thread adds a glamorous metallic glimmer to your embroidery project. Formed of six easily divisible strands you can use alone or combine with stranded cotton for just a hint of shimmer. For the best stitching experience, work with a shorter length of Light Effects (no more than 30cm) to prevent fraying. If Light Effects becomes twisted while stitching, drop your needle and let it unwind itself. Made from 100% polyester. 8 meter skein.
