Real Metal Thread Grades

The history of real metal thread embroidery goes back to three thousand years B.C.. Today, three grades of metal threads are still used for samplers, historic and contemporary embroidery.

Military (Gilt) - This is the least expensive grade and tarnishes readily. Suitable for insignia or for those embroideries requiring the development of a verdigris (green tarnished) effect.

Ecclesiastical - This grade will remain bright for approximately 10-20 years. Kreinik’s grade of ecclesiastical real metal threads has been processed with an additional tarnish-proof coating which extends the length of time the thread will remain tarnish-free and bright!

Arabic - This is the most expensive grade and remains tarnish - free for up to 100 years.
