Hilos Omega has been producing high quality threads & yarns in Mexico since 1948. Hilo Vela El Globo is their line of embroidery thread that is perfect for all kinds of hand embroidery, cross stitch, friendship bracelets and other handcrafts.

Hilo Vela is mercerized to strengthen the thread, improve colorfastness, and reduce shrinkage, however it is less mercerized than other brands of embroidery floss, such as Cosmo or DMC. The lower level of mercerization produces a thread that has a more matte finish and the individual plies will fluff out more over time to produce fuller stitches. It is this thread that gives traditional Mexican embroidery its distinctive look.

Hilo Vela thread from Mexico!

I am loving this thread for its vibrant colors and texture. So grateful to be able to order this because it matters to me that I am able to support a small business and do the traditional bordado stitches in a way that also feels authentic!

Ready, set, stitch!
