Purely Gates Mylar gives our designs that wonderful sparkle and shine.

We only use the Opalescent color of the iridescent tissue. We do not use the colored mylar sheets so we cannot recommend it.  The mylar we use tears away easily, does not shred thread, and does not dull your needle. It will pick up the color of thread that is stitched over it. 

The mylar we use and recommend can be washed, dried and ironed. Your embroidery thread will melt before the mylar will if you hold an iron on the thread too long. We always iron embroidery from the backside.

The Mylar is sold in packages of 3 sheets that are 18"x30". One sheet will do all of the designs in a collection almost twice depending on the design.
