Do you love the sparkle of metallic threads but hate the frustration of using them? Then read on…
Blackcore has been a very popular thread for us. If you want the sparkle of a metallic but not the stiffness then you should give this thread a try. It has a very soft hand and sews like a dream. I used to have lots of trouble with metallics. For me, metallics always meant thread nests, breakage and lots of four letter words I don’t normally utter – but not with Blackcore. It’s the perfect thread for quilting, thread art or machine embroidery. If you use it on a darker fabric the black almost disappears and all you’re left with is the sparkle. If you use it on lighter fabrics you get both the black and the sparkle. Both equally nice, just depends on what look you’re after.
Blackcore is a black polyester thread wrapped with a metallic. It comes in 28 colors (single colors and variegated.) Suggested retail for the 612 yard spool is $10.70 for the single colors and $11.70 for the variegated colors. Our price is only $9.00 for any color. What a deal! How can you not try it at that price?
You can see all the beautiful colors here. If you have used Blackcore in a project I would love to see a photo!
