Now you can get WIRED facets for easier couching! You’ll remember that Facets have the look of beads although they are NOT beads. You can lay this wired thread down in any configuration, sinking the ends to the back of your canvas and then couching it down. Think again of outlines, words, gates, stems, bug legs and antennae, swirls, gold crown work, etc. Each spool is 2.5 yards.
Kreinik says: Kreinik’s bead-like thread just got better: Facets™ are now available in a wired version. Popular for replicating the look of beads on needlepoint, cross stitch, crazy quilting and art quilts — without having the mess of beads — this metallic thread adds a unique texture and interest to surface work. It can look whimsical and beady in certain designs, or resemble a Bullion, Frieze, or Jaceron real metal thread in more classical design themes. Available on 2 meter (2.5 yard) spools.
