This is a beautiful, lustrous, silk yarn of Perle 5 weight. It is wonderful for general embroidery and craft work when you need a thread Perle 5, but want the luxury and softness of silk.

I am a bookbinding, and thus when I personally use these threads, it's always on books, but obviously that doesn't mean that it can't be used for other crafts. That being said: For making head- or endbands (bookinding) it is a thick thread. I found it great for slightly more rustic volumes (in the photo is a book bound in the style of a limp vellum) for which I used a headband with the bead on the spine and the colour number 01. Its thickness makes for speedy sewing.

It is also perfectly suited for Asian bindings. Kojiro Ikegami (Master Craftsman of Japanese Bookbinding) recommends Perle 5 silk thread for most bindings.

PLEASE NOTE about COLOURS:
Since this thread is dyed in a hand-made process, colours can vary significantly from dye lot to dye lot. Colours could turn out more or less vibrant than they seem in the picture, and may have a smaller or larger proportion of a certain shade over the length of the thread. The pictures are a guide only and may not truthfully represent the thread you'll receive.

GORGEOUS! This is an excellent color variegation on luxuriously silky, chunky thread. Hilke is a stellar seller and communicates proactively - LOVE that! International shipping was surprising smooth and arrived much sooner than expectation - also love that! Customer for life.

This yarn is hands down gorgeous! Colors are vibrantly saturated. Silky and chunky at the same time. It's lovely to work with, as I use it for embroidery, and I never have an issue with it kinking-up as I stitch like I've encountered with other inferior threads.
