Fine #8 Braid in Cross Stitch

Kreinik Fine #8 Braid is a high quality metallic thread used in cross stitch, needlepoint, crochet, knitting, weaving, scrapbooking, cardmaking, fly fishing and more. Fine #8 Braid is available in the colors listed below on 10m (11yd) spools. Color numbers with an "F" are glow-in-the-dark colors and will glow when exposed to light; they also look great under black lights. Color numbers with "HL" are Hi Lustre, those with "V" have a vintage-matte finish, those with a "C" are braided cords (stiffer, resemble real metals), and those with "L" are holographic.

Fiber Content: 100% polyester (holographic colors), 65% polyester/35% rayon (regular colors), 62% polyester/38% nylon (hi lustre colors), 64% polyester/36% nylon (vintage colors), 80% polyester/20% nylon (glow in the dark colors)

Stitching Tips: In cross stitch, it is about the weight of two strands of cotton embroidery floss. Use it straight from the reel, do not try to separate. No need to combine strands; if you need a thicker thread, just go up to the next Kreinik Braid size (which would be #12 Braid).

PLEASE NOTE: Kreinik does not sell direct to the public, so all orders received on this website will have payment collected and fulfilled by independent retailers. Due to the pandemic plus high demand, it may take 10 weeks to get an order to you. We are facing unprecedented production, supply and staffing issues during the COVID-19 pandemic, and shipping services all over the United States are seeing delivery delays. We appreciate your patience and are working to improve the situation every day.

Due to the COVID pandemic, production is limited. If a color isn't listed below, it is not being produced at the moment (this is just temporary). What can you do if you are in desperate need of a color that we aren’t producing right now? There are several solutions:

  • Many retailers have stock of these “odd” colors, so search online, or contact us for names of shops that do mail order.
  • Join one of the needlework or fly fishing groups on Facebook, Reddit, or other social media, and ask if someone has the color you need. Many people are willing to trade, sell or give. There are also retailers in these groups who may see the post.
