Panache is a twisted rayon with a high sheen that is perfect for 18 count needlepoint. Use as it comes off the cards. It has beautiful jewel tone colors and may substitute for Fiesta. Use shorter lengths or let your needle dangle to untwist is you are using a normal length. Makes wonderful twisted cords that can be couched down on your canvas or used for finishing. Also great for tassels. Use a bargello tuck to tie off, or tie off normally once, and then again in the opposite direction. Its tight twist makes it easier to handle than most rayons.
