Metal Thread Information
METAL HAND EMBROIDERY THREAD INFORMATION Please find below lots of information and pictures on metal threads and how to use them. I now have a Metal Thread Information PDF File that you can download which has 100 pages with pictures and information on the metal threads that you will find on this webpage. This PDF is nicely laid out so that you can print off the pages you want and view the enlarged pictures of the threads against the ruler. I am charging a small fee for the PDF file to cover
Gilt Twist Gold Cords and Threads

Price Per Yard. Plate is a flat metal strip which is couched down. Broad plate is smooth and shiny and whipped plate has a wire wrapped around the smooth plate at an angle giving it a serrated appearance. Visit the Metal Thread Information page of my website for further information and pictures on how the thread can be used on an embroidery and FAQ about metal threads.
