Embroidery threads

The variety of embroidery threads that you can see in the market will take you by storm. There are threads and yarns made of different colors, fibers, types and weights too. You need to base your choice of thread on the fabric that you are doing embroidery on. The thread count of the fabric and the specific type of embroidery that you are attempting should be taken into account too.

Embroidery floss is a very common kind of thread that is used for embroidery. It has a glossy finish to it that makes the embroidery come alive. The great thing about this variety of embroidery thread is that it is available in a variety of colors. It also comes in twisted strands of 6 threads so that you can choose the thickness that you want to use. It is always better to use the embroidery floss of the same manufacturer for a single project since the finish can vary across manufacturers.

Pearl cotton is embroidery thread that is available in a single ply. It has a pearly finish due to the process of mercerization. This kind of embroidery thread is available in the form of a twisted skein or a ball depending on the thickness and the weight of the thread. The range of colors for size 5 is larger than that for size 8. A larger number indicates finer thread.

Other embroidery threads that are also used often include silk threads, metallic threads, satin and rayon threads and wool threads. These are relatively more expensive than the regular floss or pearl cotton. Metallic threads, however, can add a lot of glamour if you are embroidering something on your dress.
