Designer-requested blends are in the spotlight of the five new metallic thread colors from Kreinik. Now available in Fine #8 Braid size (plus #12 Braid) are two cheerful lime green shades: 5801 Cool Cucumber has a touch of blue, while 5802 Leap Frog is a pearly lime. Then we filled in some of our color families with various hues: color 5803 Seaside blends pretty purple and pearl. Colors 5800 Golden Blackberry and 5804 Calypso (a rich orange) feature a golden shimmer thanks to the addition of gold to the base fiber. Calypso would add a level of elegance to Halloween and autumn designs, while Golden Blackberry covers many design themes.
Use Kreinik #8 Braid in needlepoint on 18 mesh canvas, and as a blending thread on larger canvases. In cross stitch, Fine #8 Braid is about the weight of two strands of embroidery floss, which means it gives perfect coverage on 14-count Aida. It is also good when used over two threads on 28-count linens. Kreinik Braids are proudly made in the USA, in our Parkersburg, West Virginia, factory.
All five new colors are ready to be in your stitching repertoire, to bring your next design to colorful life. You can find Fine #8 Braid in your favorite needlework store or http://www.kreinik.com/
