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.

I have a PDF file that you can download for the Metal Thread Information Page which has 100 pages with pictures and information on metal threads that you will find on the webpage.

Price Per Yard. Available in Gold 2%, Gilt, Silver and Copper.

Bright Check Purls are made up of a very fine wire thread that is wound into a soft flexible hollow tube with a serrated/jaggered 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 recommend ordering enough for your project as each manufacturing batch can differ slightly in the appearance of the serrated/jaggered surface and colour.
