Cross stitching with metallic thread without the head f#ck

Cross stitching with metallic threads can be a challenge, but with a few tips and the use of thread conditioning wax, you can create beautiful and shimmering designs.

Cross stitching with metallic thread gives a really eye-catching look to your finished cross stitch designs, but it can be trickier than you’d think. The threads often fray, splits, and twists; but fear not, the internet is full of tips and tricks to combat this. I’ve had a good dig through all of my old cross stitch books (lovingly rescued from charity shops) watched about a million tutorial videos on YouTube, and tried every trick I can find, this is the best method I’ve found for cross stitching with sparkly floss… without losing your mind.
