Kreinik Metallic Very Fine Braid #4 is the premier metallic thread for cross stitching because it is so soft and easy to use. Stitch with Very Fine (#4) Braid in Cross Stitch (16-18 ct) and Needlepoint (for light details on 18-30 ct). It's also nice and thin for crazy quilting, scrapbooking and card making embellishments. In fly fishing, it adds a little weight to bodies and heads without adding too much bulk. 50m (55yd) spools.
Color numbers with an "F" are glow-in-the-dark colors and will glow when exposed to light; they also look great under black lights. Color numbers with "HL" are Hi Lustre, those with "V" have a vintage-matte finish, those with a "C" are braided cords (stiffer, resemble real metals), and those with "L" are holographic.
