I carry three sizes of check thread:


  • 8 X 2 check thread is the finest of the three check threads that I carry and is approximately 0.5 mm across the width of the thread.
  • 16 X 3 check thread is approximately 0.75 mm across the width of the thread.
  • 36 X 6 check thread is the thickest of the three check threads that I carry and is approximately 1 mm across the width of the thread.

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

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.

I recommend ordering enough for your project as each manufacturing batch can differ slightly in the appearance of the serrated/jaggered surface and colour.
