Au ver A Soie is the manufacturer of fine silk thread and yarns in France since 1820. Soie d’alger is a seven ply stranded silk, each strand is twisted. The silk comes in a 5 meter pull skein which means you can pull the thread out without  removing the label.

I have dark yellow (gold), light yellow (gold), grey (silver), brown (copper), bright red, dark red and black which can be used for couching down metal threads and for silk shading when doing goldwork embroideries.
