super spun natural silk thread Nm 8-2

Love this


According to Japanese master bookbinder Kojiro Ikegami, author of what many consider THE book about Japanese bookbinding, the perfect thread for a Japanese binding is a silk twist about the same thickness as Perle 5 thread.

This silk here is just the right thickness at 400m per 100g. It has the same thickness as the (simple) spun 12/3 silk you can find in another listing. But the "super" spun makes this silk stronger and more even.

Other than for binding books this is a wonderful material for crochet or knitting, as well as especially lush macramé. All in all it is just a lush thread, and could serve everywhere where you are looking for softness combined with strength.
