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.

The thread has a wavy (kinked) serpentine appearance and is similar to Rococco but has a closer wave.

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

Check thread is made up of a fine metal wire wrapped around a fibre core. The wire is copper based with a gold or silver plating and will tarnish over time.

I am discontinuing sizes 3 – 10 of the Wire Bullion as the thread is the larger bullion’s and are not so commonly used and I want to free up some workroom space. I am selling the thread at 50% off. The threads are great for large embroideries, modern and experimenting and are high quality. 

Available in Gilt and Silver.
