Here is some of the Gold, Platinum, Silver and Urushi thread.

They will arrive packaged (not a shown) like common embroidery thread. This listing is for a 50+yard skein. There will be breaks, as this is fine thread and a bit challenging to package! If you would like 100 yards, please convo me. I provide a little extra because there is always waste. Use short lengths to prevent breakage!

This GOLD thread is a thread which was to used in weaving OBI and embroidery of Uchikake (wedding kimono). This thread is Genuine GOLD & SILVER Dust. Kamibari, the gilt thread is made gluing gold dust to a very thin Japanese paper, and coiling the paper around a thread core, usually linen. The core of this is silk.

I have used this for hand embroidery, and it works great. It is quite fine thread.
Please check back as I do plan to try it by machine. Just have not had the time yet.

I have 5 shades of real gold thread, as well as silver. Please check my listings.

The Urushi thread I have listed is gorgeous in a pale tan, wheat gold to green variegated, brass, coppery gold and eggshell.

Please read my Policies section.

Thanks for looking!
