Silk Perle 5 Embroidery Thread, Headbanding, Asian Stitch Bookbinding

Silk Perle 5 Embroidery Thread, Headbanding, Asian Stitch Bookbinding
£4.60 20 Available
Love this


This is a silk perle 5 embroidery thread with its typical wonderful sheen. It can be used - no surprise - for embroidery but also for crochet and other fibrecrafts.

Length per skein is 12m.

Japanese Master Bookbinder Kosanjin Ikegami who wrote THE book about Japanese bookbinding recommends Silk Perle 5 thread for the typical 4-hole stitch binding.

And I like to use this thread for making slightly more rustic (than with finer thread) headbands.

The silk has been hand-dyed by a family owned business in Southern England. Please see the range of available colours in the photos and let me know what you would like to purchase.

The last images show a book for which I used this thread for headbands, it is not part of this listing.
