Cable gives a very elegant touch to any design. Use Kreinik Cable when you want a twisted metal or rope-style look in your needlepoint, cross stitch, or sampler designs. It's also good for wrapping and embellishing scrapbook pages and cards. Available on 10 meter (11 yard) spools.
Tips on using Kreinik Cable in hand work:
Cable comes on a snap-spool. Both sides of the spool open; look for the side where the thread end is located. Insert your thumbnail under the cap, and rotate the spool while gently lifting the cap to release the thread (the cap should not pop off). Snap the lid shut to secure the unused portion.
Stitch slowly with Cable to achieve more control and insure uniformity in stitching.
Let your needle hang frequently to let the thread untwist if you have recurring problems with tangling and knotting.
Use short lengths of cable-about 45cm (18 inches) or less-to avoid excessive wear on the thread and for greater control (less knotting!).
