Metallic/Synthetic Threads--
 

Kreinik Metallic Braids

 

These are the metallic threads that all of us have grown up with. Also known as Balger thread, they have proven to be a mainstay in the needlework arts. We carry a good selection of these threads in the most popular colors to meet most stitchers’ needs and can special order any of the colors and sizes that we don’t have in stock.

 

Kreinik has an excellent web site, containing excellent tips and recommendations, as well as color charts for their metallic threads at: http://www.kreinik.com/

 

These are the sizes that Silk Road Needle Arts carries in the largest assortments:

          Braid #4.  Very Fine braid; use for needlepoint (22-30 count); cross stitch (16-25 count); and for machine embroidery. ($2.99)

 

          Braid #8. On 18 count, blend with stranded threads, such as cotton and silk, to give a subtle glitter to the work. On Congress Cloth, use as is comes from the reel for good coverage. Comes in approximately 150 colors (including Hi Lustre, Cords, and Florescent) on 11 yard reels. ($3.39)

 

          Braid #12 . A newer introduction designed specifically for 18 count fabrics, very popular with today’s designers who want to present detail in their creations. Comes in approximately 110 colors (including Hi Lustre, Cords, and Florescent.) on 11 yard reels. ($4.49)

 

          Braid #32. Works well on larger counts of canvas, such as 12/13; can be couched on smaller canvases as well. Comes is approximately 130 colors (including Hi Lustre, and Florescent) on 5.5 yard reels. ($3.50)

 

We also carry blending filament and metallic ribbon (1/8 and 1/16") in the most popular colors.
