DMC’s Diamant Grandé metallic thread is double the thickness of the standard Diamant embroidery floss. This opulent 6-ply metallic single-strand, non-divisible thread glides effortlessly through nearly any fabric – from cotton to linen, silk to satin – giving a luminous 3D effect to both cross stitch and traditional embroidery projects. The spool holds 20 metres of thread. Colour numbers are similar to cotton numbers. Made in Japan. Could be used as a replacement for Kreinik #8 thread.
