Filament Silk gimp is a round, cord-like thread made of Soie Ovale for hand embroidery. Its smooth finish bestows a distinct raised texture in surface couching or detached stitches such as trellis stitch. Great thread choice for Pekinese, herringbone or any stitch done on a surface ground.
Use in canvaswork with shorter 14 inch lengths for any flat stitches such as Byzantine, as it provides a unique textural effect.
Available in 10m/ 11 yd spools in 6 initial colors, with more to come.
The top and bottom of the spools lift up for ease in securing the thread.
