Bullion Thread – Bright Check

Bullion Thread – Bright Check

$5.23$12.47 USD

Price Per Length.

Bright Check Bullions are made up of a very fine wire thread that is wound into a soft flexible hollow tube with a jaggered/serrated and shiny surface.

The tube is cut up into chips (beads) and couched down onto the fabric – passing the needle and thread through the middle of the chip so the thread is hidden and can be sewn over felt or crochet cotton padding to give the area dimension.

If you require the Bullion thread for small designs or for special occasional garments then I suggest using Purl Thread (Bullion) – Bright Check instead which is a more appropriate size thread.

I carry several sizes in Bright Check Bullion. I recommend using the bullion threads that I sell for large projects that are seen from a distance as the threads are too big for small embroidery designs under 10 inch in size. For embroidered pictures and for special occasion garments I recommend using the Purl Thread (Bullion) – Bright Check.


  • No. 1 Bright Check Bullion: Approximately 1.5 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 2 Bright Check Bullion: Approximately 1.75 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 3 Bright Check Bullion: Approximately 2.5 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 4 Bright Check Bullion: Approximately 2.75 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 5 Bright Check Bullion: Approximately 3 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 6 Bright Check Bullion: Approximately 4 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 7 Bright Check Bullion: Approximately 5 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 8 Bright Check Bullion: Approximately 6 mm across the width of the thread.

Bright Bullions are made up of a very fine wire thread that is wound into a soft flexible hollow tube with a jaggered/serrated and shiny surface. The wire of the thread is copper based with a gold or silver plating and will tarnish over time.

The tube is cut up into chips (beads) and couched down onto the fabric – passing the needle and thread through the middle of the chip so the thread is hidden and can be sewn over felt or crochet cotton padding to give the area dimension.

I suggest ordering enough for your entire project as the manufacturing batches of the bullion can vary in colour and texture of the jaggered/serrated surface so you may not get an exact match the next time you order.

Visit the Metal Thread Information page of my website for further information and pictures on how the thread can be used on an embroidery and FAQ about metal threads.

Japanese threads or Japan threads are made up of a synthetic foil wrapped around a fibre core that will not tarnish. The Kreink Japan threads are the softest of the Japan threads that I carry with the foil not as firmly wrapped around the fibre core.

Rough Purls are made up of a very fine wire thread that is wound into a soft flexible hollow tube with a dull (matte) surface.

The tube is cut up into chips (beads) and couched down onto the fabric – passing the needle and thread through the middle of the chip so the thread is hidden and can be sewn over felt or crochet cotton padding to give the area dimension – see the last picture.

I recommend using purl threads instead of bullion threads when working on small pictorial designs as purl threads are more suitable in size and order enough for your project as each manufacturing batch of rough purl can differ slightly in colour.

I have a PDF file that you can download for the Metal Thread Information Page which has 99 pages with pictures and information on metal threads that you will find on the webpage.

This PDF is nicely laid out so that you can print off the pages you want and view the enlarged pictures of the threads against the ruler.

Price Per Length.

Flatworm is made up of a flattened metal strip wound around a fibre core and then lightly flattened so that the finished appearance is similar to broad plate but is more flexible and therefore easier to handle whilst stitching.

Flatworm thread is couched down singularly or two strands at a time as a filling or outline.
