Threads in her are what makes embroidery work so beautiful and lively. Keep your eyes peeled, there’s a lot to find! Here we present threads that you can find in the Painters Shop . We also give you tips on where to buy the threads in solid colors.
There are two basic types of embroidery thread
If you work with several threads of a strandable thread, all threads must always be separated. For example, with Soie d’Alger (R), all 7 individual threads have to be pulled out individually. Then the desired number of threads is joined together again. This is the only way the individual threads can come together to form a beautiful, flat embroidery pattern.
The easiest way to separate the threads with strandables is as follows:
When working with several threads, it is always advisable to run the thread over an auxiliary instrument. The threads remain parallel to each other and no longer twist as much.
A thick needle or a finger can be used as a laying aid, a bodkin, a mellor or a tekobari works better. After cutting out, the threads are guided over the laying tool until the threads are pulled through completely.
There is a trick for delicate threads that makes processing a little easier:
Slightly twisted threads should always be “twisted” a little so that they retain their structure and/or shine during work. This applies e.g. B. for Cotton á Broder and Soft Cotton. The same applies to heavily twisted Pearl Cottons, where the structure and luster are retained by re-twisting.
In general, only cut short threads (1 cubit = 30 cm!). The only “excuse” for a longer thread is a very large stitch where the thread does not pass through the fabric as often.
