The Glide Thread Metallics collection includes colors that look metallic. This thread is still a 40 weight polyester, so no metallic thread hassels! It includes 6 colors: Silver, Sand, Light Copper, Cleopatra, Military Gold, and Sterling.
Simply put, Glide thread is perfection. It is a 40 weight poly that has a slight sheen. It is like a good pair of diamond earrings- it catches the eye without being obnoxious about it. Use it for machine quilting or machine embroidery. It will work equally well doing either or both.
