Au ver A Soie is the manufacturer of fine silk thread and yarns in France since 1820. Soie d’alger is a seven ply stranded silk, each strand is twisted. The silk comes in a 5 meter pull skein which means you can pull the thread out without  removing the label.

I have dark yellow (gold), light yellow (gold), grey (silver), brown (copper), bright red, dark red and black which can be used for couching down metal threads and for silk shading when doing goldwork embroideries.

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.

Visit the Metal Thread Information page of my website for further information and pictures on how the thread can be used on an embroidery and FAQ about metal threads.

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.
