Bullion Thread – Bright Check

Bullion Thread – Bright Check

$6.75$16.10 CAD

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.

Bright Check Purls are made up of a very fine wire thread that is wound into a soft flexible hollow tube with a serrated/jaggered 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 – 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 check purl can differ slightly in the appearance of the serrated/jaggered surface.

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.

The British made Japanese threads are the goldest in colour and with the glossiest surface and the highest quality Japanese thread that I carry. The synthetic foil wrapped around the thread core is sturdy and is unlikely to untwist and will not tarnish.

Gimp cords are made up of three individual strands. Each individual strand is made up of a fine metal wired wrapped around a fibre core. The wire is copper based with a gold plating and will tarnish over time. The three strands are twisted into a cord which makes a lovely outlining thread.
