Over the last year I have been sourcing a new SILK EMBROIDERY THREAD to replace the twisted silk I had previously been carrying. The previous silk I had in the shop can be somewhat challenging to work with, especially for beginners. So today I am introducing my new silk embroidery thread, SILK PERLE. This is a 3 ply twisted silk which is a dream to stitch with, lovely and smooth. You can find a beautiful small selection of colours in my shop. If this product proves popular I’ll be adding more colours.
This will give you some ideas of how it looks stitched. In the top left I’ve shown a crazy quilt seam treatment using this new hand dyed silk perle. The new silk perle compares well with a size 5 perle cotton as you can see in the middle left photo. The lower left shows two versions of a Rhodes stitch on 18 count mono canvas using #187. The right larger sample is stitched entirely with silk perle #109 on 18 count mono canvas with a very small accent of metallic thread.
