  • IN WEAVING: Sett 8 epi. (Experiment with looser sett to vary drapability.) Keep flat for maximum sheen.
  • IN KNITTING/CROCHET: Super Fine, Fingering weight. Needle/Hook size: 1 to 3, 2.5mm+
  • IN NEEDLEWORK: Perfect in any stitch in needlepoint or embroidery (try a #18 Chenille needle). Many needlepointers prefer it for perfect coverage on 18-count canvas; lay flat with your needle, your finger or a laying tool for maximum light reflection and neatness. Can be used in cross stitch on larger counts such as 12- or 11-count Aida, or over two on 22- and 24-count linens. Lovely in ribbon embroidery stitches in crazy quilts and as embroidery on clothing/costumes.
  • CARE: Hand and machine washable; tumble dry on low. Do not iron directly onto the metallic; use a press cloth. Note: some colors like red may bleed, so we recommend testing a swatch before washing your entire project.
