Kreinik Wired Braid™ is exactly what it sounds like: a wired metallic thread the size of our Medium #16 Braid for dimensional embroidery effects. It was formerly known as Hot-Wire™.
What can you do with a wired metallic thread in bright, cheery colors? Think 3-D as embellishments can come right off the surface of your design. Think TRIMMING, as you can add a funky edging to projects. WRITE words and initials and names with the wired thread. OUTLINE motifs to make them stand out.
Secure the ends at the back of your design, then couch or shape the Wired Braid as desired. If needed to avoid raveling, treat the ends with Fraycheck or clear nail polish.
