Gimp cords are made up of three individual strands. Each individual strand is made up of a fine metal wired wrapped around a fibre core. The wire is copper based with a gold plating and will tarnish over time. The three strands are twisted into a cord which makes a lovely outlining thread.

The gimp cord is couched down by sewing the stitch at the same angle as the twist of the cord with the stitch hidden in the middle of the cord so it is invisible.

Price Per 10 Yards.

The standard lurex thread comes in dark gold  No. 371, silver No. 380 and copper No. 371. Lurex thread is very similar to passing thread but with a synthetic thread wrapped around a fibre core instead of a metal thread.

The great thing about the lurex thread is that it does not tarnish but has the appearance of a real metal thread.

Purl Thread (Bullion) – Wire Check

Price Per Yard.

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.

Pearl Purl is a wire that is wound into a tight coil that looks like a strand of gold pearls. The wire can be stretched to create different effects and used as outlines for designs or as a filling and can be combined with other threads for interesting effects.
