  • T69 Japan thread is the thickest of the four Japan threads is approximately 0.75 mm across the width of the thread (closest in size to No. 9 (K3) Japan Thread).
  • T70 Japan thread is approximately 0.5 mm across the width of the thread (close in size to No. 8 (K4) Japan Thread and Kreinik No. 7 Japan Thread).
  • T71 Japan thread is approximately 0.35 mm across the width of the thread (close in size to Kreinik No. 5 Japan Thread).
  • T72 Japan thread is the finest of the range approximately 0.25 mm across the width of the thread.

Japan thread is usually couched down two threads at the time (as it fills in the design area faster) and couched down with the same colour sewing thread or a contrasting thread in a bricking fashion. If sewn down with a contrasting thread the Japan thread can be couched down in colour in a pattern or with a range of shades, this is known as Or Nue.

Japan threads are used to fill in areas of a design or for fine lines.

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.
