WHAT'S IT FOR?
Spun silk is the classical thread for both hand and machine embroidery and will add a touch of luxury to any piece of work. Also use in tassels and braids, lacemaking and tatting for superior lustre. Although these are small spools, there is enough to add gorgeous highlights to weaving projects, especially when tablet woven into the highest quality straps and plaits.
