Can I use this kind of thread to hand embroidery?
Do you mean the kind you use in the sewing machine? I don't see why you couldn't embroider with it, but you'd need several strands so it would show up.
I found a bag of thread that is packaged like dmc floss but its thick and twisted. The picture on the front is for tassels and friendship bracelets. It has a thick interesting texture.
Can you tell I'm new to this? I have cross stitched for years and am rediscovery embroidery. I know this floss won't work for cross stich because it's not 6 threads put together its just the one twisted.
OH, that sounds like the kind of thread you would do Hardanger embroidery with. Yes, it would be great for hand embroidery. It comes in different weights.
