Available in 24 brilliant solid and multi-colors, Sulky Holoshimmer is a thin, flat, ribbon-like polyester film that is metallized with an aluminum holographic layer to give it a shimmery, brilliant reflectiveness.
Hints for success when using Holoshimmer
  • Use a 14/90 metallic, topstitch, or embroidery needle.
  • It is important to use Holoshimmer only on a vertical spool pin.
  • Sew slower.
  • All Metallics hate abrasion and small stitches; Metallics simply don't bend well into small stitches.
  • Use a soft pliable Sulky Stabilizer to properly stabilize your fabric.
  • Lower your top tension substantially.
  • Use a lightweight Sulky thread in the bobbin, either a matching Sulky 40 wt. Rayon, Sulky Bobbin or Polyester Invisible Thread
  • Dry clean or wash in cool or warm water, dry at low heat setting. Iron on a low temperature.
