KREINIK-Kreinik Cord is a one-ply tightly wrapped metallic thread perfect for couching; outlining; backstitching or adding lacy effects when cross stitching. Ideal for machine embroidery; quilting and smocking. The fiber used to construct the cord is round which provides a nubby textured sheen. Unlike other Kreinik threads this cord will pass through the eye of a machine needle for machine embellishment. Cord colors coordinate with the blending filaments; braids and ribbons. 55 yard spool. Made in USA.
