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.

Large Back comes in one size and is similar to passing thread but much thicker (approximately 1.25 mm across the width of the thread) and is great for outlining.
