Twists also know as Torsades are cords that are made up of three strands. Each individual strand is made up of a fine metal wired wrapped around a fibre core. The three strands are twisted into a cord. The cords can be used as filling thread or an outlining thread.

I have many sizes of twists ranging from very fine to thick in gold, silver and copper:


  • Elizabethan Twist is the finest of the twists and is approximately 0.25 mm across the width of the thread.
  • Super Twist is approximately 0.35 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 1 Twist is approximately 0.5 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No 1 1/2 Twist is approximately 0.7 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 2 Twist is approximately 0.8 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 3 Twist is approximately 0.9 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 4 Twist is approximately 1 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 6 Twist is the thickest of the twists that I carry and is approximately 1.2 mm across the width of the thread.

Twisted 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, silver or copper plating and will tarnish over time. The three strands are twisted into a cord. The cords can be used as filling thread or an outlining thread.

Twists are 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 or the twists can be couched down with a stitch over the cord at a 90 degree angle.

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.
