The texture is slightly fluffy and they lack sheen but the colourings are rather
In particular, Anchor™ variegated threads create subtle variations in colour over
relatively short sections. These work best on the open-spaced geometrics. We
have used them for:
The Wise Owl's Chest (Brown/Cream)
The Unicorn's Flower Necklace (1335 Pastel Rainbow)
Variations on the Mandalas.
Threads to avoid
Anything which fluffs excessively or splits - unfortunately the Madeira Glamour™
thread (which comes in a lovely range of colours) can't take the friction caused
by pulling it through the holes, so it is not recommended for cards.
Lurex single strand - this is not a thread as such, but actually a strand of plastic
without the addition of entwined thread. It stretches when used, knots and can be
difficult to control.
