Bullion Thread (Large) – Wire Bullion

Bullion Thread (Large) – Wire Bullion

$1.66$13.27 USD

Price Per Length. Available in Gilt and Silver.

Wire Bullions are made up of a very fine wire thread that is wound into a soft flexible hollow tube with a smooth and 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.

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

I carry several sizes in Wire 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 Bullion – Rough Purl

Wire Bullions are made up of a very fine wire thread that is wound into a soft flexible hollow tube with a smooth and dull (matte) 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.
