Access Commodities Metallic Soft Twist Trim Cords

As some embroiderers are engaged in the last steps to completing projects for holiday gift-giving, featured today is Access Commodities Metallic Soft Twist Trim Cords.  This is a versatile product that can be attached in a variety of ways for all types of embellishment and needlework finishing.

Metallics, as defined by the American commercial needlework market in which we do business, are synthetic and a relatively recent innovation (since the late 1950’s) in the world of textile embellishment.  This is why the other metal threads we also sell are called “Real Metal” to distinguish and define the differences.

Aside from being very attractive, the next best thing about our Soft Twist Trim Cord is its composition and manufacture. It is not stiff or wiry like other metallic braids. You can make a sinuous “S” curve, or turn a corner without any difficulty. Often I find that some embroidery material products do not easily provide the result that is required for the effect I am trying to achieve. This product will even make beautiful loops without kinks.

There are two sizes, Size 16 (larger) and Size 20.  The size 20 cord fits an 18 count canvas doing tent stitch, if you use a size 22 Tapestry Needle. We recommend a size 16 Tapestry needle for the Size 16 cord.
 



Should  you choose to couch this down, also listed below is the recommended color in Au Ver A Soie, Soie 100/3 for each cord  Some of them have more than one color suggestion, because not every choice is suitable for every application.  For example, you may prefer the cord to act more as an accent rather than accompaniment. Finally, all of the cords are packaged in a zip-lock bag with a hang-hole for easy store display.
