Anyone who reads this blog with any regularity knows I talk about the Iris thread we sell quite a bit. Lately, however, we’ve been working on some sales materials for next year, and it has reminded me that in addition to the Iris UltraBrite Polyester and Iris Smooth ‘N Silky Rayon, we also offer some great accent threads. Today I wanted to talk a little bit about those threads.
First, of course, is the metallic thread. The Iris Dazzling Metallic is available in gold and silver. I actually like to call it the “Miracle Metallic” since it has caused so many people who had sworn off metallic thread to start sewing with it again. The Dazzling Metallic is top quality thread, that runs smoothly with fewer thread breaks. If you’ve been a diehard metallic hater, give this thread a try. I’m confident it will change your mind.
EnMart also carries a line of colored metallic thread. This stuff is awesome and the colors are vibrant. As I’ve pointed out in previous posts, our colored metallic thread can add a lot of zing to your designs. It is also an easy thread with which to embroider. Best of all, the finished results are full of shine and color and really stand out.
Next on the list is our polyester variegated thread. This, like the colored metallic, is a thread with vibrant colors. From stormy greys to brillant yellows, from baby blue to petal pink, this thread runs the gamut of shades. Like all EnMart threads, it is a smooth running and durable thread. Our variegated thread is perfect for machine embroidery, quilting and embellishment of all types.
Finally, while it’s not strictly and accent thread or even an embroidery thread, I didn’t want to forget to mention our merrow floss. EnMart’s parent company, Ensign Emblem, uses this floss on the emblems they manufacture. We know this floss is colorfast and washfast because we’ve seen it subjected over and over again to an industrial wash and dry. If you create patches, this merrow floss should be perfect for your needs.
