Smocking Gathering Thread
Smocking is a special thread which reacts to heat. The thread shrinks drawing an iron over the fabric slowly, while the fabric does not, causing the fabric to pucker in a controlled way. The wrinkled effects are beautiful and limitless. No special needles are needed, and shrink embroidery can be sewn on any type of embroidery machine.
