Blackwork Ultimate Threads Pack

Blackwork Ultimate Threads Pack
£7.50 5 Available
Love this


A specially developed blackwork threads pack to provide three grades or thicknesses of black cotton embroidery thread.

All of the threads are pure cotton, mercerised to provide a gentle sheen and all made by reputable manufacturers.

Each Blackwork Thread Pack contains 6 skeins:
2 x 20m Fine Perle cotton size 16 Skein
2 x 20m Fine Perle cotton size 12 Skein
2 x 20m Perle cotton size 8 Skein

We also offer these in three pack sizes but if you want a custom pack made up then just let us know.
6 threads - 2 of each
9 threads - 3 of each
12 threads - 4 of each

Cotton is measured in weight so the numbers give an idea of the thickness of the thread.

Size 16 Perle is incredibly difficult to obtain in a good quality black and is slightly thicker than 1 strand of cotton mouline.
Fine Perle 12 is about twice as thick as a 16 and becomes a little softer.
The thickest of the blackwork threads is a Perle 8 which is about 50% thicker than the Perle 12.

Perle cotton threads have a gentle twist which gives them a bit more definition. Although these threads are of the highest quality and a very robust, we always recommend using a standard 'short' length (from finger tip to elbow). This helps preserve the gentle sheen of Perle threads.


Putting together a supply of blackwork threads often means pulling in supplies from different retailers and very rarely can these threads be found on the high street or in one we have done the hard work for you.
