Fairly plain brown Kraft paper wrapping, tied with white linen or silk string. Your message can be hand written on a card if you wish.

  • Materials: Primary fibre: Silk
  • Yarn weight: 3 dk & light worsted

According to Japanese master bookbinder Kojiro Ikegami, author of what many consider THE book about Japanese bookbinding, the perfect thread for a Japanese binding is a silk twist about the same thickness as Perle 5 thread.

This silk here is just the right thickness at 400m per 100g. It has the same thickness as the (simple) spun 12/3 silk that you can find here:

the "super" spun makes this silk even stronger and more even.

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 lush 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 best know before your purchase.

Love these. I've already given one to a friend. The recycled packaging is great, and made me really happy. The best side of eTsy!
