Hints & Tips:
For the best stitching experience with DMC Light Effects Thread, work with a shorter length of thread (try 12 inches). The will help keep the fibers fresh and prevent fraying. If the thread becomes twisted while stitching, drop the needle and let it unwind itself.
Care and Washing:
DMC Light Effects Thread can be washed in lukewarm water (30° C/86 °F) with a mild detergent. Don't bleach. Wrap it in a towel after washing so that it may absorb the excess water. Dry flat. For pieces that can be dry cleaned, any dry cleaning solvent will do except for trichloroethylene.
