This Soft Gold is a perfect example of the entire category of 24k vintage Japanese gold thread. Silver was laminated onto a single strand of silk. 24k gold was then electroplated onto the silver. One would think that applying two metals onto a thread would make it hard and non pliable, but that is not the case. As you can see, this #1 thread (the finest gauge) is completely pliable. Holding it, it is almost beyond comprehension that there is any metal at all in its' construction,but those are the facts. Sinuous and supple and strong as well, this lovely thread will enhance any project from sewing, embroidery and other classic needlework crafts to collage, scrapbooking, jewelry making and even basket weaving!
This is a #1 size thread, similar to regular sewing machine thread.

Shipping policies

We ship via USPS but will ship via other means if requested.

The US postal service does not offer international tracking at any sort of reasonable price, so it is *ship at your own risk*....we have shipped many many international packages without trouble, but if it gets lost in customs or whatever I cannot refund you. I am sorry! If you really want a tracking number/insurance you will have to pay quite a bit extra.

Additional policies

********** MOST of our silk fabric is almost over 50 years old and some MAY have age spots or water stains. Most of our fabric is in great condition, but every piece is from a re-constructed kimono.
