Golden Harvest 742- DMC Stranded Embroidery Cotton
DMC stranded cotton thread is a high quality embroidery thread. It is mercerised twice and so has a lovely sheen. Each bunch of DMC embroidery thread has six strands. Vary your stitching and create texture by using multiple threads.
The dyes are fade resistant and so your beautiful piece will keep its vibrancy. Follow the DMC's recommended washing instructions below. We recommend that you don't store your work in direct sunlight when finished to avoid fading.
Before starting an embroidery piece select a fabric which will be able to hold the stitches. Pre-wash to avoid shrinkage. When washing your completed piece use a mild soap and hand wash. After washing wrap the embroidery in a towel to remove excess water. Dry flat. Place the embroidered piece on a clean cloth while damp and iron on the reverse side at the temperature recommended for the fabric.
