DMC Light Effects Thread is a glistening metallic thread that will add reflective qualities and sparkle to any needlework or craft project. Made from 100% polyester fibers, Light Effects Floss is comprised of 6 size 25 easily separated strands. Light Effects uses a color numbering system that easily corresponds to the popular cotton DMC Embroidery Floss. You can add a subtle highlight to your stitching by combining one strand of cotton Floss with one strand of Light Effects. Or for a more vibrant look, you can substitute Light Effects for its matching shade in Cotton Floss.

Light Effects is available in 36 brilliant colors in 6 thread families Jewel Effects (14 colors), Precious Metal Effects (6 colors), Antique Effects (5 colors), Pearlescent Effects (8 colors), Fluorescent Effects (2 colors), Glow-in-the-Dark Effects (1 color). We’re sure you’ll love stitching with DMC Light Effects threads. They will glide through your fabric easier than most other metallic-type threads.  And with the premium quality DMC brand name behind it, the Light Effects line is sure to be a sparkling glittering addition to your next work of art! DMC Light Effects Floss features the familiar 8.7 yard pull skein put-up.


Jewels (14 colors)

Ruby, sapphire, emerald, amethyst… you’ll find all of the precious stone effects in this collection. Plus, there are two multi-colored threads, Gemstones and Golden Dawn, which are exclusive to DMC and very unique in their coloring and stitched presentation. Ideal for stitching pieces where a glimmering sheen is desired, or for elements that naturally reflect light such as water, precious stones and more.

Antiques (5 colors)

Gilt finishes and antique metals, ideal for adding a vintage look to stitching, and a classic style for decorative purposes.

Pearlescents (8 colors)

Pastel, pearly, iridescent tones, ideal for delicate effects on baby items, special occasion pieces, or romantic themes, wherever a soft accent is desired.  Designs picturing natural effects such as pearlized seashells, the morning light, delicate flower petals … they all reflect these gentle tones.

Precious Metals (6 colors)

Silver, gold and bronze effects for the traditional metallic thread effect of enhancing with a subtle sheen.

Fluorescents (2 colors)

Two luminous shades, green and yellow, which add a bright look to any project.  Great for kids’ items.  And with Back Stitching done in black around the fluorescent threads, a very dramatic effect can be achieved.

Glow-in-the-Dark (1 color)

An innovative new thread that lights up the night!  After being exposed to light, this white thread delicately glows in the dark.  A must for fun, bright projects, and kids will love it.
