The TWISTED GLOSS SILKS are top quality continuous filament silks with twist to make them very strong but with a soft feel. The lustre of these silks is quite exquisite.
90/2 TWISTED GLOSS SILK, 90/3 TWISTED GLOSS SILK and 80/3 TWISTED GLOSS SILK are perfect course threads for Honiton.
The 90/3 Gloss Silks are a favourite of Sandi Woods who has used them extensively throughout her Milanese lace designs.
All sizes of the Twisted Gloss Silks are used by restorers of Split Cane Fishing Rods.
90/2 Twisted Gloss Silk is a ‘medium’ sized thread which can be used for whipping rod rings. 90/3 and 80/3 Twisted Gloss Silks are ‘thicker’ threads which can be used for whipping ferrules and rod rings on heavier rods.
