    Would someone please help me. What needle would I use for hand embroidery using metallic floss? The needles I have shred the thread and has become a nitemare. Thanks in advance.

    Dee,
    Check with the thread manufacture company. Most are online and are willing to help in any way they can. I try not to use mettalic threads just because they break so easily.

    Hope it helps,
    Sharon

    I'm unexperienced with metallic threads in embroidery. I haven't embroidered for a while. I do have some needles that say they are for use with several different types of thread/floss, metallics being one of them.
    You can look at my online store, if you'd like. I scanned front and back of most packs, so you can see the info on which type of metallic it says. Web addy is at bottom with my sig.
