Mirage wonderfil embroidery thread

Mirage Wonderfil embroidery thread is textile artist Lucy Garvin’s favourite of all the threads in the line as there are so many ways to use it. It is a 30 weight rayon thread,  which gives more coverage and fullness to decorative embroidery stitching! Mirage is a random space dyed rayon thread meaning the colour changes at random intervals and has fairly strong contrasts between colours, what you see on spool is not necessarily what you are going to get when you sew with it. Test this thread before you use it in your sewing projects!

See the Colouricious inspiration gallery for embroidery and textile art ideas and inspiration!
