Riolis is a modern company specializing in cross stitch and bead embroidery kits that counts over 20 years of operation. All its products are excellent, of high quality and professionally designed, using the finest materials from top companies such as: Zweigart, Anchor, Safil.

Most of cross stitch kits created by Riolis contain wool/acrylic threads. There is a certain reason why they are using these threads as a basic material for their designs. Old traditions and their own experience have assured them in amazing quality of this material.

The first known in the history embroideries were made with woolen threads. Ancient stitched ornaments were considered to protect the house from evil spirits and women also decorated clothes with it.

Wool/acrylic threads used in Riolis kits are produced by Italian company Safil. Modern technologies gave an opportunity to improve the quality of wool raw materials adding acryl to woollen yarn. These threads are made of 70% of acryl and only 30% of wool. Their wool/acrylic threads are more resistible to abrasion, better preserve the color and are less allergenic.

Wool/acrylic threads are very smooth to the touch. It is easy to stitch even if you are inexperienced in such kind of handiwork, and stitches lay tight giving soft and matte surface.

Embroidery with wool/acrylic threads looks more like 3D, than it does with stranded cotton threads.

Different decorative elements with wool embroidery make your house look stylish and cozy.

The whole palette of dark colors of wool/acrylic threads is very deep and saturated. So there are some designs like animals, landscapes which look more attractive, vivid and very close to the original.

Here you can see the difference between stitching with wool/acrylic threads and with cotton stranded threads:
