I have nice embroidery from Asia with cheap imitation metallic thread that would look better if it didn't sparkle so much. I assume the thread is synthetic of some sort. For sure it is not real metal. Any ideas would be appreciated . I don't know how to test the thread to figure out what it is and it is already in a garment so there is not a lot of room for error. Thanks.

Having owned an embroidery shop, I can tell you the thread is made of polyester. So, the best thing to use is fabric dye to get the effect you want.

Wear sunglasses! Sorry no other practical ideas at the moment.
