Spun Silk Packs
Our new 140/2 Spun Silk Packs consist of 5 x 100m cops of the most beautiful spun silk shades which have a gentle matt lustre.
140/2 Spun Silk can be used for either embroidery, lacemaking or needlework. By comparison it is a little thinner than one strand of DMC Stranded Cotton but can easily be plied in the needle to the desired thickness. It is a twisted spun silk and can be used to great effect in embroideries where the high lustre of a continuous filament (ie floss silk) is not suitable.
For lacemaking 140/2 Spun Silk is equivalent to a Madeira or Tanne 50 (see Thread Comparison Chart in Buying Guide).
