How do I work with blending filament?

Don't Stretch It!

Some types of blending filaments have the tendency to stretch when stitching. Don't pull them too tightly, and be careful of those pesky knots in your strand.

I also find that with blending filament or metallic thread, that "Thread Heaven" coating helps from stretching and knotting. Makes these threads much easier to work with.
