Tambour Thread is approximately 0.2 mm across the width of the thread.

The thread is made of a fine metal wire wrapped around a fine fibre core and will tarnish over time. If you want an alternative synthetic thread that will not tarnish then you can use the Kreinik No. 1 Japan Thread.

Available in Gilt and Silver.

Bright Bullions 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.

Lizerine is a wire that is wound into a tight coil that looks like a strand of gold pearls. The wire can be stretched to create different effects and used as outlines for designs or as a filling and can be combined with other threads for interesting effects. Lizerine is similar to Pearl Purl but has a squared appearance instead of rounded appearance.

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.

The thread is rounded and smooth in appearance and turns corners easily when using a fine tipped tweezers. Large Back is couched down singularly in the same colour sewing thread or a contrasting colour.

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.
