A heavier metallic in antique shades. The effect is more of a soft glow than a shiny sparkle. It ravels easily, but can be controlled by a dab of Fraycheck or clear nail polish at one end. Before threading the needle, snap the length of yarn gently to tighten the chainette and make the stitching easier. It is a little bit thicker than #5 pearl cotton, but not as thick as #3 pearl. Use on eighteen or fourteen count. Fine for bargello stitches on twenty four count Congress cloth.
Use on 17 or 18 mesh, stitch with one size larger needle and break rather than cut thread.
