Keep it simple! There are 15 colours with seven textures in a bag; yarn (mercerised thread), bouclé, chenille, round corded rayon, knitted flat rayon and 2 crazy wools for that extra dimension. If you have an abundance of traditional threads add to your collection by ordering from Les Designs. You don't have to spend a lot, just order a silk screen of the design and a packet of textured threads and add to your stash.
Seven matching shades in various textures, ranging from rayon, silk, organza, chenille, bouclé, yarn, stranded cotton, cord to crazy wool.
Certain textured threads can be pulled through the background fabric and couched in position. (i.e. rayon and organdy depending on the width of the thread and weave of the fabric).
Use the chenille needle and wiggle it in the fabric to help the threads pass easily through the fabric so as not to damage the fibres.
Other textured threads with knots or high pile (i.e. bouclé and chenille) are best worked on the top side of the fabric. Simply lay the textured thread down and secure the tail with a couple of holding stitches in a single strand of matching floss or fine yarn. Once the tail has been secured, proceed with couching. End with a couple of strong holding stitches.
"Just Stitch" has many more couching tips…
At times these packs do vary depending on availability of product and supply and demand.
