This is a braided silk thread, if you look closely, you can see the braid pattern on the string.

This braided silk is an incredibly strong silk braid of medium weight. It is useful in embroidery as it is very round and has a central core.
It is useful in general craft work where the high strength can be asset; for example for jewelry making, for making a necklace, etc.

For bookbinding I see it mostly as a thread for stab bindings and decorative elements like tassles on stab bindings.

I am frequently asked about its diameter, but it is hard or impossible to measure with a caliper gauge because it is compressible, and the calipers will just press it together. It ranged just below 1mm in relaxed state. I taped it to a ruler with 1mm gap between the lines.

PLEASE NOTE
like all my threads, I do not make or dye them myself; this thread here was dyed by a family owned business in Southern England (Stef Francis)

about the 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.
