Dimensions

Yarn weight: 3 DK & light worsted

Material

Primary fibre: Silk

Description

This is pure silk, strong and at the same time so deliciously soft as only silk can be.

For traditional Japanese bookbinding the sewing thread should be made from silk and have about the same thickness as Perle 5 cotton, according to master bookbinder Kojiro Ikegami, author of what many consider THE book about Japanese bookbinding.

Other than for binding books this is a wonderful material for crochet or knitting, as well as especially lush macrame.
But all in all it is just a beautiful thread, and could serve everywhere where you are looking for softness combined with strength.

You can use it as it is, but it also takes different dyes well.

I offer it here in the following make-ups:
* 10m wound onto a cardboard card
* 30m as a skein
* 20g (approximately 80m) as a small centre-fed ball
* 45g (approximately 180m) as a good sized centre-fed ball

If you wish a different make-up or different length or weights, let me know before your purchase.

Can’t thank you enough at the speed they shipped from England to the US! The waxed thread is gorgeous; can not wait to make journals with these beautiful colors! Each shade is perfect!
