Care & Washing
DMC Machine Embroidery Thread is 100% colorfast and fade resistant. The dyes in the thread provide excellent resistance to light and washing. The thread can be washed at high temperatures 95° C/203° F. Particular attention should be paid to the fabric on which the thread was embroidered. Wash your embroidery with one teaspoon of mild soap such as Orvus. After washing, gently wring it out and rinse it as many times as necessary to get the soap out of it (until the water is clear.) Use almost cold water to rinse the piece. Wrap the embroidery in a towel to remove excess water, then dry flat. Place the embroidery on a clean towel and iron on the reverse side, at the temperature setting recommended for the fabric.
How to Use
DMC Machine Embroidery is a finer size 50 thread, allowing you to have great control of your embroidery. Use the thread sparingly to add details and accenting to your embroidery. Fill in large areas or create textured raised effects by building your embroidery as high as you wish by making stitches upon stitches.
