Crochet Cotton for Padding

Crochet Cotton for Padding

$1.80 USD

A soft cotton thread (Bernat crochet cotton) is used to pad narrow areas on goldwork designs such as leaves, stems and branches.

The crochet cotton should be waxed first with beeswax so that it is coated and stiff and can be sewn down single or in bundles of two, three or more strands, sewing down the strands with a single strand of polyester sewing thread.

Metal threads such as purls, bullions and Japan threads can be sewn over the crochet cotton padding raising the threads and giving the embroidery a dimensional effect.

I have a PDF file that you can download for the Metal Thread Information Page which has 100 pages with pictures and information on metal threads that you will find on the webpage.

This PDF is nicely laid out so that you can print off the pages you want and view the enlarged pictures of the threads against the ruler. I will email you the PDF file once I have processed your payment.
