Smocking - special effect thread

A special thread which reacts to heat. When an iron is drawn across the fabric slowly, the thread shrinks while the background fabric does not. The fabric puckers in a controlled way and the wrinkled effect is beautiful and limitless. No special needles required. Can be sewn on any type of embroidery or domestic machine. Household iron perfect for this purpose-iron on wrong side and with a light hand.
