What Is Metallic Thread?
Metallic thread is a forged yarn made of gold and silver as the main raw material or a chemical fiber film with gold and silver luster. Traditional metallic thread can be divided into flat gold thread and round gold thread. Glue gold foil on paper and cut into thin strips of about 0.5 mm to form a flat gold thread, and then wrap the flat gold thread around cotton yarn or silk thread to form a round gold thread. Some precious traditional fabrics such as Yunjin still use the traditional metallic thread.
