For easier handling, and greater control, try dampening DMC Satin embroidery thread with a moist cloth before you thread your needle. Or use a thread conditioner like Thread Heaven. If the thread becomes twisted while you stitch, simply drop your needle and let it unwind.
Care and Washing: DMC Satin Stranded Cotton is 100% colorfast. It can be washed multiple times at 60°C but please take into account the care instructions for the fabric you have embroidered.
