DMC Satin Thread
Available in 8m Skeins
DMC Satin Thread is a shiny radiant thread available in 60 stunning colors and is made from 100% rayon fibers which brings out the exceptional beauty and sheen to all stitching projects.
Satin Thread is the shiniest DMC thread available and it glides easily through fabric.
DMC Satin is a highly lustrous, 6 size 25 easily separated strands which can be easily included into your embroidery or craft projects which will add a subtle highlight to your stitching by combining one strand of stranded cotton with one strand of Satin Thread or for a more vibrant look, replace DMC Satin for its matching shade in Stranded Cotton. DMC Satin uses the same color numbering system as DMC Stranded Cotton. There is simply an “S” prefix in front of the color number. For example, the popular color number 310 in DMC Cotton Floss has a corresponding color number S310 in Satin Thread.

This beautiful fiber is particularly striking when used as an accent to other DMC threads in cross-stitch, embroidery and all types of creative stitchery.
For easier handling, and greater control, try using a shorter than normal length of thread (30cm), try dampening DMC Satin with a moist cloth before you thread your needle. If the thread becomes twisted while you stitch, simply drop your needle and let it unwind. Another easy way of keeping this shiny thread under control, is by using a thread conditioner called Thread Heaven. Simply run your thread through this product and start stitching.
