$2.85$4.07 USD

Price per 40 meter spool or a 10 meter spool or skein.

Japanese threads or Japan threads are made up of a synthetic foil wrapped around a fibre core that will not tarnish. The Kreink Japan threads are the softest of the Japan threads that I carry with the foil not as firmly wrapped around the fibre core.

The Kreinik Japan threads are the softest of the Japan threads that I carry with the synthetic foil not as firmly wrapped around the fibre core. The Kreinik Japan threads will not tarnish.


  • No. 1 Japan thread is the finest of the Kreinik Japan threads that I carry and is approximately 0.2 mm across the width of the thread and is a good thread for couching down metal threads such as Check Thread, Flatworm, Japan thread, Large Back, Standard Lurex Thread, Passing and Rococco or used for counted and surface embroidery on its own or in combination with another embroidery thread.
  • No. 5 Japan thread is approximately 0.35 mm across the width of the thread and there are many colour options for the thread (close in size to T71 Japan Thread).
  • No. 7 Japan thread is the thickest of the three Kreinik Japan thread that I carry and is approximately 0.5 mm across the width of the thread (close in size to No. 8 (K4) Japan Thread and T70 Japan Thread).

The No. 5 and No. 7 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.

The company has discontinued skeins so if there is not a skein option your only option is the spool.

I have a PDF file that you can download for the Metal Thread Information Page which has 100 pages with pictures and information on metal threads that you will find on the webpage.

This PDF is nicely laid out so that you can print off the pages you want and view the enlarged pictures of the threads against the ruler. I will email you the PDF file once I have processed your payment.

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.
