#4 is a hand painted braided thread made of 4 strands of Metallic, suitable for any kind of stitching. Because of the braided structure the very delicate base material becomes stronger while it still feels very soft. It looks terrific for e.g. cross stitch, knotted stitches and chain stitches.
The distinctive small braided band makes these metallic threads slightly textured, durable and effortless to embellish with. The unique hand painted process of all Painter's products makes these glittery metallic threads dance with colour, adding a bead like shimmer to embellishment stitches.
This thread is quite strong and does not easily fray in the needle. 10 metres per skein.
