Superfine Japanese Metallic Stitching Tapes



These exquisite superfine Japanese  threads are another favourite new acquisition. They are coated in a very fine layer of real metal and thus have a delicious, sparkling sheen. They are soft, strong and being extremely fine, they stitch effectively directly through the fabric using a no. 26 chenille needle. They can therefore be used to work many surface embroidery stitches, giving them a delicate twinkling quality.

Use them with a laying tool such as a mellor or aficot to encourage them to sit flat and slide smoothly through the fabric. They can also be used for pleating in the same manner as rolled metal ‘plate’ but are much softer and therefore easier to handle. I have used them in the ferns in my Gawthorpe Needlecase.

The tapes come in 25m lengths.
