Soie Perlée by Au Ver à Soie ® is a twisted 3 ply filament silk. Unlike perle cotton, Soie Perlée expands to fill the area when using a light tension. The sheen of Soie Perlée is also of a more permanent nature.
Soie Perlée is great for cross stitch on linen, creating light play in hardanger or pulled thread work, or for making elegant cording and tassels. It’s particularly nice to use in contrast with Soie d’Alger in the same design—one thread having a high sheen, the other a soft luster.
Available in 16m/ 17.5 yd spools in 14 initial colors, with more to come.
The top and bottom of the spools lift up for ease in securing the thread.
