Metallic Yarns

Metallic Yarns

Metallic yarns and threads are usually made from metalised polyester and the main manufacturer of these yarns is Lurex. Lurex yarns are often knitted or twisted with other yarns to add strength to a very glitzy yarn or a subtle hint of twinkle.

Use in all types of crafts for that extra bit of bling, though remember to strengthen up the very fine yarns by working them with another thread if using on a loom, sewing machine or knitting machine as they cannot cope with high tensions and speeds.

Metallic threads make excellent additions to Christmas crafting in card making, cross-stitch, braids and tassels, hand knitting and crochet - brilliant for a bit of festive sparkle.
