Rajmahal Art Silks, made from viscose rayon, add elegance and luster to your needlework projects. Uses include smocking, embroidery, needlepoint, tassels, fringes, cross stitch, stumpwork, crewel work, petit point, goldwork, silk ribbon, hardanger, whitework, lace-making, braiding and absolutely exquisite bullion roses. The thread is strong so it may be used in the bobbin of your machine. Frequently used in projects in Embroidery and Cross Stitch magazine, and Australian Smocking and Embroidery as well as other embroidery magazines.
Dry cleaning is best to maintain the luster of your embroidery but it can be washed gently. Always press embroidery from the wrong side on a towel--try to avoid the stitching area as much as possible--using a low temperature. There has been some changes in the pollution laws that prohibit the use of some agents used to set the dyes. This means that it is more difficult to set the dyes. If you do have a little bleeding, it will usually disappear if you rinse it well in cool water. A little bi-carb soda or vinegar helps in the final rinse to maintain the luster.
There is nothing like the luster and beautiful colours from these threads. Made in Australia. 8 metre skeins, 6 strands.
