Flatworm

$0.82 USD

Price Per Yard.

Flatworm is made up of a flattened metal strip wound around a fibre core and then lightly flattened so that the finished appearance is similar to broad plate but is more flexible and therefore easier to handle whilst stitching.

Flatworm thread is couched down singularly or two strands at a time as a filling or outline.

I carry two sizes of flatworm thread:


  • No. 4 flatworm thread is the finest of the flatworm threads that I carry and is approximately 0.75 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 6 flatworm thread is the thickest of the flatworm threads that I carry and is approximately 1 mm across the width of the thread.

The metal strip is copper based with a gold or silver plating and will tarnish over time.

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.

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.

Lizerine 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. Lizerine is similar to Pearl Purl but has a squared appearance instead of rounded appearance.
