Hand Embroidery
Ombre is a truly sensuous fiber with a soft drapability. Due to its loose twist, it looks 'furry,' which leads to exciting textural possibilities. In canvas work, for example, use it in a variety of stitches for snow, or garland on a Christmas tree&what else can you think of? Ombre is gorgeous in a satin stitch on fabric or canvas; use a solid color or take advantage of the variegated shades. Hold this thread in your hand and stroke it; enjoy the softness.

Machine Embroidery
Kreinik Ombre is one of the most exciting threads available to machine embroiderers. Whether you use the solid colors or the variegated shades in the needle, you will fall in love with its soft, 'furry' texture suitable for many machine stitches and techniques. Also ideal for bobbin work or for use in a serger; adjust tension accordingly.

Care
Kreinik Ombre should only be dry cleaned. Do not hand or machine wash.

Tips on using Kreinik Ombre in hand work:

  • Ombre comes on a snap-spool mechanism. Both sides of the spool open; look for the side where the thread end is located. Insert your thumbnail under the cap, and rotate the spool while gently lifting the cap to release the thread (the cap should not pop off). Snap the lid shut to secure the unused portion.
  • Use short lengths of thread-about 45cm (18 inches) or less-to avoid excessive wear on the thread and for greater control (less knotting!).
  • Use a needle large enough to 'open' the hole in the fabric sufficiently and allow Ombre to go through more easily.
