I carry four sizes of Grecian twists:


  • Very fine Grecian twist (baby) is the finest of the Grecian twists and is approximately 1 mm across the width of the thread. I carry a two toned and individual tone in the thread.
  • Fine Grecian Twist is approximately 1.2 mm across the width of the thread.
  • Medium Grecian Twist is approximately 1.8 mm across the width of the thread.
  • Large Grecian Twist is the largest of the Grecian twists and is approximately 2 mm across the width of the thread.

The four strands that make up the Grecian Twist are comprised of a fine wire wrapped around a fibre core. The wire is copper based with a gold plating and will tarnish over time.

Grecian Twist 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.

Smooth Purls are made up of a very fine wire thread that is wound into a soft flexible hollow tube with a smooth 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 colour.

Tambour thread is a fine real metal thread that can be used for couching down other metal threads such as Check Thread, Flatworm, Japan Thread, Large Back, Passing Thread, Rococco and Starndard Lurex Thread.

It can also be used in combination with other embroidery threads for surface embroidery, counted thread embroidery, weaving and lace making to add sparkle.

If you want an alternative synthetic thread that will not tarnish then you can use the Kreinik No. 1 Japan Thread.

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.
