BF Blending Filament 1 ply
Use Kreinik Blending Filament, by itself or combined with other yarns, to create random highlighting effect in all hand embroidery like cross stitch and needlepoint, plus machine embroidery, crochet, and knitting.
Some added information from Kreinik:

Applications:


Brazilian Embroidery, Stumpwork, Blackwork, Crewel, Crochet, Cross stitch/counted thread,  Fly fishing, Hardanger, Knitting (by hand), Lace making, machine embroidery/in the needle or bobbin work, Needlepoint/canvas work, Punchneedle embroidery, Smocking and  Weaving.

Hand Embroidery:


The thin quality of Blending Filament allows you to create subtle light reflection. You can combine the Blending Filament with another thread type, in the same needle, to create a metallic sparkle. The addition of one or two strands does not add weight to your thread, so you can use the needle size that accommodates the original thread you are using. You can vary the amount of shimmer you want to add to a design by using one or more strands; use a single strand for the most subtle shimmer or two strands for added effect.

Care


Kreinik Blending Filament is hand or machine washable and dry cleanable. Cool water is recommended. Do not use bleach. It can also be tumble-dried on low setting. When ironing a finished piece containing Blending Filament, do not iron directly on the thread; use a cloth, and do not use steam.

Tips on using Kreinik Blending Filament in hand work:


Blending Filament comes on a snap-spool mechanism. Both sides of the spool open, so look for the side where the thread end is located. Insert your thumbnail under the cap, and rotate the spool while gently lifting the cap to release the thread (the cap should not pop off). Snap the lid shut to secure the unused portion.

Use short lengths of thread-about 45cm (18 inches) or less-to avoid excessive abrasion when pulling the thread through the ground fabric or canvas. The more a strand is pulled through fabric or canvas, the more 'wear' it causes on the thread. Using shorter lengths will maintain the quality of the thread, plus reduce tangling as shorter lengths are easier to control (less knotting!). If you are stitching on fabric, use a needle large enough to 'open' the hole in the fabric sufficiently and allow the thread(s) to go through more easily; this reduces friction and fraying.

If combining Blending Filament with another thread type in a needle, you may wish to moisten the filament together with the other thread with a slightly damp, soft cosmetic sponge. This can help to control both thread types as they work together in your needle.

Stitch slowly with Blending Filament to achieve more control and insure uniformity in stitching.

Let your needle hang frequently to let the thread untwist and thus reduce knotting.

If using Hi Luster Blending Filament, lay the filament flat and smooth as you stitch to allow maximum light reflection. Think of it as a tiny ribbon; using a laying tool can help prevent twisting, or simply use your finger to lay the thread.

55 Yard spool
50 meters

Needle:


Tapestry No. 22, 24, 26, or 28 Kreinik Ombre is an 8-ply, softly twisted metallic thread. Due to its loose twist, it looks 'furry,' creating a whole new dimension to your fine stitching. Ombre is gorgeous in a satin stitch.

Kreinik Ombre should only be dry cleaned. Do not hand or machine wash Ombre.

Tips on using Kreinik Ombre in hand work:


Ombre comes on a snap-spool mechanism. Both sides of the Ombre thread spool open.  Find the side where the thread end is located. Insert your thumbnail under the cap, and rotate the spool while gently lifting the cap to release the thread (do not try to pop off the cap - it just lifts). Snap the lid shut to secure when you have released the amount of Ombre Thread needed.

Use short lengths of thread-about  18 inches or less-to avoid excessive wear on the thread and for greater control.

Use a needle large enough to spread the fibers in the fabric to sufficiently allow Ombre to go through easily.
17 yard (15 meter) spools.
