I just finished redwork blocks for a quilt and used Finca #12, it has a slight sheen and very easy to use. Now I am using DMC Cotton Perle #8. I found the Finca did not knot as easily and tangle as the dmc. What thread do you like to use in embroidery? I have another quilt top I would like to do, in dark brown thread, any suggestions. I am tempted to order the Finca as it was good to work with. Thanks.
