Anchor Marlitt Rayon Thread is a 4 ply, stranded embroidery thread with a lovely high lustre which is suitable for all types of embroidery. It is made from 100% viscose/rayon which produces the high silk like sheen in 90 super rich colors on 10m skeins.
Anchor Marlitt Rayon Thread can also be stranded down to 1 ply depending on the project you are working on. In store, we often added it to stranded cotton to highlight or add emphasis to a particular part of an embroidery. It can of course, just be your chosen medium for a project which will resulting in the most beautiful silk-like finish.
- Use a shorter length of thread than you would use with traditional embroidery thread i.e. 30cm
- Run under a warm iron to even out any kinks and minimize twists or tangles
- Use a thread conditioner (we used to use Thread Heaven) to minimize twisting or fraying Simply run your thread through this product and start stitching
