DMC Light Effects Thread sparkles with a metallic shimmer. It’s made from 100% polyester fibers and will give your project a gorgeous twinkle. The thread consists of six size 25 easily separated strands. Use it on its own or combine it with a strand of cotton floss for a touch of shine.

For the best stitching experience with DMC Light Effects Thread, work with a shorter length of thread (try 12 inches). This will help keep the fibers fresh and prevent fraying. If the thread becomes twisted while stitching, drop the needle and let it unwind itself.

I find that if I use a slightly larger needle than I would for cotton floss, it makes it a bit easier to use. Pull the thread through at right angles to the fabric to reduce “drag”. Sometimes tangling can be a problem, and it is often the result of static electricity buildup. I keep a little square of a dryer sheet with my metallics, and that helps a lot. I also use the dryer sheet to smooth down the length of thread I’m using if it starts to get snarly. The dryer sheet needs to be changed out from time to time.
