Mixed thread - the thread consisting of additions (strands) of thread of different colors (with the different commodity / trade number of the manufacturer). Mixing of thread allows to receive other aggregate color thread is not made and which is not commercially available.
To describe this thread as well use the terms like melange, blend.
Usually sold DMC the thread has 8 meters in length and 6 additions (strands).
Embroidery by schemes Alex Fashion CS using mixed threads always is sewn two additions.
When the distance to a meter, with the that look embroidery, adding different colors mixed in a string merge into the thread of one color. With increasing distances greater than 1 meter embroidered crosses are not visible.
For example, we have two threads DMC of different colors (numbers) - Product No. 720 and Product No.741
and we need to have received mixed thread using by one of the addition of each thread
Using other combinations of the number of additions, such as 2 + 1 or 3 + 1, when sewing important places (such as the human body and especially the face) is highly undesirable, since the likelihood of such proportions desired color is sharply reduced. When embroidering with such proportions on the part of embroidered appears very strong graininess and decreases smooth transition. These proportions, it makes sense to use when sewing is not important places, such as the background, making embroidered part less monotonous.
Threads that are needed to stitch under the scheme Alex Fashion CS are listed in the table "LIST THREAD" (LIST OF THREAD) . This list is in any scheme Alex Fashion CS regardless of whether there is a mixed embroidery thread. The number of coils required is indicated in the column "Hanks".
