From Rainbow Gallery "A word about Gold Rush XS, try this on both 11 count Aida and 18 count canvas. It is a very versatile yarn. This metallic can be used to replace 4-5 strands of blending filament for those who do not like to ply up. The problem of filament curling up on itself will be solved when you use Gold Rush XS." I say, this is a fun thread, give it a try. 20 yard cards, most colors in stock, all available special order.
