Nordic Gold Threads by Rainbow Gallery

$5.00

This is our favorite marking and stitching thread. It is the perfect companion to the Rayon thread for your temari projects.

Stronger than a blending filament and finer than a braid, this chainette thread comes in a lovely range of colours.

Nordic Gold is a very fine chainette metallic. This construction gives them a soft hand but can make them a bit difficult to work with at first. However, practice solves the problem of the chainette unraveling. There are several things to do to gain control of these yarns. You can use a larger than normal needle, be careful not to drag the yarn. The larger needle makes a bigger hole for the yarn to pass through and there will be less friction on it. You might also try a smaller than normal needle as this tends to set the yarn in the needle and it will not run beyond the small eye of the needle. It is not the end of the world when the yarn unravels. Cut ahead of the raveled part and rethread your needle. Chainettes are softer and less expensive than braids. They plump up and cover the ball better. These advantages far outweigh the initial difficulty you might find.

If you hate to ply-up blending filament this will work well and you will not have the trouble with it curling and fighting you while you stitch. It is about the size of 2-3 plies of filament.

This is the cheapest price that can be found in Australia for this range. Postage within Australia only, is $4.00 for a single item or $0.50 when shipped with other items.

(1 strand 18-24 count)
