Description

Buttonhole silk threads

100 meters/package of high quality 100% silk thread. Used for historical (and modern) handcrafting such as:
sewing
making buttonholes
lacing holes
embroidery
tablet weaving
lucet cords
jewelry making
tassels

The thread is durable, high in shine and gives a smooth surface in weaving. Can be split, or used as it is. I use 2 spools for 70-80 buttonholes.

For tablet weaving, ten cards/tablets (4 holes) gives around 6 mm finished weave (depending on method, this is just a measure taken from my weavings to help you out with planning).

The silk is sold per package of 10 spools/100 meters as shown in pictures. This is my thread of choice when sewing in silks, wools, tablet weaving workshops, making buttonholes etc.

Photos shows different use, comparing to sewing machine thread in thickness and different colour combinations to help you choose. Remember that colours may appear different from reality due to computer screens.
