Bullion Thread (Large) – Bright Bullion

$5.95$11.90 USD

Available in Gilt and Silver.

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.

I carry two sizes in Bright Bullion in case you need a larger bullion thread for your metal thread project. Bright bullion comes in large sizes which are typically not suitable for small embroidery projects such as the Goldwork Kits that I sell on my website, for these types of embroideries you would use Bullion – Smooth Purl instead. Sizes larger than No. 2 Bright Bullion would be used for huge projects such as alter frontals or modern embroideries.


  • No. 1 Bright Bullion: Approximately 0.75 mm across the width of the thread.
  • 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.
