I carry a variety of passing threads:


  • No. 3 smooth passing thread is the finest of the range approximately 0.25 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 4 smooth passing thread is approximately 0.35 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 5 smooth passing thread is approximately 0.5 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 6 smooth passing thread is approximately 0.7 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 7 smooth passing thread is the thickest of the real metal passing threads and is approximately 0.8 mm across the width of the thread.
  • No. 13 passing thread is the thickest of all the passing threads and is approximately 0.8 mm across the width of the thread. The No. 13 passing thread is a synthetic thread and will not tarnish over time.

Passing is made up of wire wrapped around a fibre core. The thread is straight and smooth in appearance and turns corners easily when using fine tipped tweezers. Passing is couched down singularly in the same colour sewing thread or a contrasting colour.

I am discontinuing sizes 3 – 10 of the Wire Bullion as the thread is the larger bullion’s and are not so commonly used and I want to free up some workroom space. I am selling the thread at 50% off. The threads are great for large embroideries, modern and experimenting and are high quality. 

Available in Gilt and Silver.

Wire Bullions are made up of a very fine wire thread that is wound into a soft flexible hollow tube with a smooth and 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.

The standard lurex thread comes in dark gold  No. 371, silver No. 380 and copper No. 371. Lurex thread is very similar to passing thread but with a synthetic thread wrapped around a fibre core instead of a metal thread.

The great thing about the lurex thread is that it does not tarnish but has the appearance of a real metal thread.
