Looking for Matte hand embroidery cotton

Claudiam | Posted in Fabric and Trim on


Does anyone know where I can find/purchase a hand embroidery thread like the matte finish cotton threads used on embroidery on high end jeans and tee shirts etc. (like Lucky, DKNY and Tahari brands)? These embroidery threads are not like the standard smooth embroidery threads commonly found but are more ” natural? and primitive looking — matte and often not perfectly smooth.

I did several searches but couldn’t come up with anything. Must be looking in the wrong places or overlooking something!

I want to do some designer-like embroidery and the shiny standard type just doesn’t go withy the ” distressed” look.


Thanks so much.

    DMC makes a linen thread that you might like. It doesn't come in a huge color range.
