How to purchase Embroidery Thread or Floss.
When I mention embroidery thread (sometimes called floss), I am referring to the 6 stranded thread that comes in a skein. It is held together by two paper labels.
- I will fix these before I go on.
Hold the thread so it lies along in your hand,close your fingers around the thread and grip it firmly Pull the strands you selected and you will notice it start to bunch up at the bottom of your hand. That is OK!!
Keep pulling until your strands are free BUT don't let the thread in your hand go. You will end up with a big bunch.
Take the ends showing at the bottom of your hand and, while still holding your hand firm, pull the thread out straight again. Wasn't that simple!
