Kreinik Fine #8 Braid is a high quality metallic thread used in cross stitch, needlepoint, crochet, knitting, weaving, scrapbooking, cardmaking, fly fishing and more. Fine #8 Braid is available in the colors listed below on 10m (11yd) spools. Color numbers with an “F” are glow-in-the-dark colors and will glow when exposed to light; they also look great under black lights. Color numbers with “HL” are Hi Lustre, those with “V” have a vintage-matte finish, those with a “C” are braided cords (stiffer, resemble real metals), and those with “L” are holographic.
Fiber Content: 100% polyester (holographic colors), 65% polyester/35% rayon (regular colors), 62% polyester/38% nylon (hi lustre colors), 64% polyester/36% nylon (vintage colors), 80% polyester/20% nylon (glow in the dark colors)
Stitching Tips: In cross stitch, it is about the weight of two strands of cotton embroidery floss. Use it straight from the reel, do not try to separate. No need to combine strands; if you need a thicker thread, just go up to the next Kreinik Braid size (which would be #12 Braid).
