DMC Diamant metallic thread is a smooth, single-strand, non-divisible thread, that adds instant shine to any needlecraft project. This soft, tangle-free floss will keep it’s twist as you stitch, allowing it to glide effortlessly through nearly any fabric – whether it’s cotton, linen, silk or satin – and making it perfect for both cross stitch and traditional embroidery. One strand is equivalent to two strands of DMC’s Stranded Cotton thread. The spool is 35 metres long which is more than 4 cotton skeins. Colour numbers are similar to cotton numbers. Made in Japan.
