Metallic embroidery threads are terrific for fly tying. MFC imports several great 230-denier colors from Italy. Canada Llama carries Glitter Thread in many colours. Lots of options out there. The rust color fishes great mid-summer on. MFC color 700- Rainbow pretty much covers every early dark chironomid.
