Bullion Thread – Bright

Bullion Thread – Bright

$2.00$16.00 CAD

Price Per Length.

Bright Bullions are made up of a very fine wire thread that is wound into a soft flexible hollow tube with a smooth 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) – Smooth instead which is a more appropriate size thread.

I carry several sizes in Bright 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) – Smooth.

  • No. 2 Bright Bullion: Approximately 1 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 smooth 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 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.

Passing thread is couched down singularly in the same colour sewing thread or a contrasting colour. Passing thread is often used for Or Nue (couching down the passing thread with different colour threads to create a design or pattern on the surface of the passing thread) and underside couching.
No. 13 Passing threads are synthetic and will not tarnish.

Purl Thread (Bullion) – Wire Check

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

Large Back comes in one size and is similar to passing thread but much thicker (approximately 1.25 mm across the width of the thread) and is great for outlining.

The thread is rounded and smooth in appearance and turns corners easily when using a fine tipped tweezers. Large Back is couched down singularly in the same colour sewing thread or a contrasting colour.
