Ultra-fine 100% Silk Chenille – Blue and Purple



These threads are one of my favourite discoveries.  I have always admired the ribbon work of the Victorian period and earlier, which frequently includes work stitched directly through the fabric using pure silk chenille, but I had struggled to find a chenille fine enough to thread into a needle which did not shred as it passed through the base fabric.  This chenille solves both these problems; it has a lovely dense pile, and does not shred when used in a normal stitching length.  It stitches well in a no.22 chenille needle.

The silk is hand-dyed specially for me in Kyoto.  Each pack contains 4m of silk chenille.
