Threads and Floss
LIBERTINE - Au Ver à Soie 7 Strand Silk Alger Thread for Hand Embroidery
Spun "Alger" silk thread for hand embroidery from Au Ver à Soie Paris, in a range of soft pastel colors inspired by the colors found in Marie Antoinette's bedroom at Versailles. Loosely plyed, this silk floss separates easily for work as fine as 1-2 strands. Bright and soft with an excellent tensile strength and smooth twist for snag-free needle working. The unrivaled quality of their raw silk means it does not abrade easily. And yes, it's colorfast and washable!
Au Ver à Soie silks have been made by the same family in Paris since 1820.
There are six colors in the LIBERTINE palette.
- 100% spun silk
- 7 strand floss
- 5 meters per skein
- colorfast and washable
- Made in France
Each Sublime Stitching x Au Ver à Soie palette is packed in a reusable envelope for storing your silks. Use the window cutout to continue pulling from the skeins!
