Mountmellick thread

Mountmellick thread is completely matt, that is, it has no shine at all. It is a finely twisted thread made of soft, unmercerised cotton. These threads were developed specifically for use in Mountmellick embroidery, in consultation with one of Ireland's premier teachers of Mountmellick embroidery.

Pearl cotton and coton a broder should NEVER be used for Mountmellick embroidery. They are too shiny. When I went to Mountmellick to research my book on the subject, I took with me some coton a broder to use. The ladies there were aghast! "You can't use that - it's too shiny!" Thread for Mountmellick embroidery should be completely matt - have no shine. Anyone who tells you different is not being true to the tradition of Mountmellick embroidery. Threads developed specifically for Mountmellick embroidery ARE available right here, so why not use them?
