Anchor Marlitt

Rayon Thread

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.

Anchor Marlitt Rayon Thread s a beautiful fiber and is particularly striking when used as an accent to other DMC threads in cross-stitch, embroidery and all types of creative stitchery.
Editors Note:  Rayon or Silk threads  can be a bit tricky to work with but my in store teachers used to recommend the following tips for working with it:
  • 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
