Cameo Thread


Cameo is a high lustre, heavy rayon yarn for bobbin work, cross-stitch, overlocking and more. It has a low twist giving a high lustre finish. This thread bulks out after stitching to fill the gaps between stitches for full coverage in decorative edge stitching or in flatlock. It is beautiful to use for couching on the sewing machine, or couching on the Sashiko Quilting Machine (crossing the threads in front of the forming Sashiko stitch).

The tempting colours of the most elegant decorative overlocking thread on the market will have your creative juices flowing. They are soft and pliable so they work easily alone or blended with other threads. Their smooth and soft consistency makes them perfect for many overlocker and sewing machine projects. Cameo has a unique sheen and its slight twist keeps it from fraying unlike other similar products on the market.
