Threads and Floss
VERDURE - 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 lush greens (and one silvery grey) I've selected for you that will contrast beautifully when combined with each other! 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 VERDURE 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!
