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.
