My ornaments are made using Twilleys Goldfingering thread, one of the softest metallic yarns I have ever used.
Machine washable and doesn't tarnish. 80% Viscose, 20% Metalized Polyester.
I use this thread because the sparkle is unbelievable and does not unravel as others do metallic stays put.
That does not mean you cannot use other threads with these patterns.
Just depends on the final outcome you want.

The medium balls are 50 grams (approx 218 yards) and will make approximately 8-12 ornament covers, depending on your gauge. Some will get more, I am giving the minimum.

$11.00 each (plus ship/hand)

Many of my customers use the metallic thread for other craft projects.
I compare the thread to a #10 crochet cotton in size. It has a bit of elasticity
and pulls up around the ornament quite snuggly.

Below are the colors that the Twilleys Goldfingering comes in. Customers have
told me that the covers keep the ornament from breaking when dropped.
If it does break, the cover can be put on another glass ornament.
Silver #5
Silver shines like the starry night
White Multifingering #10
White with opalescent threads throughout.
Great for making snowflakes.

Black with loads of sparkle.
This would make a beautiful delicate shawl or snood.

Makes me think of a Fire Truck all shiny and bright.
Forest Green # 51
Deep green as moss on a shaded hillside.
Pale Blue # 54
Pale Blue is very soft and like icy blue, still has lots of sparkle.

I call this Navy Blue, rich, deep color.

Chocolate is as chocolate does but with flair and sparkle!
