First, let's talk about thread. Bobbinwork designs
require thick thread to achieve the maximum effect.
These bobbinwork designs are digitized for 12 weight
thread, such as Madeira Burmilana (a wool/acrylic blend, which we're
using here) or BurmilanaCo (a cotton/acrylic blend). These threads are
available from a variety of retailers, including
The Sewphisticated Stitcher.
You can also substitute other threads of similar
weight, such as this
size 10, 3-ply cotton crochet thread) or
this 8 weight polyester metallic thread.
