About Our Silks

Our silk is 100% pure Chinese monofilament silk thread. The thread comes in skeins of six strands of 6.5 metres long, with a total skein length of 39 metres.

The strands can be used individually or in any combination to suit the project you are working on. There are 700 shades of silk to choose from. The silk can be washed carefully in cool or cold water but we do not recommend washing the red shades even though they are guaranteed colourfast. We think it wise to be wary of strong shades!

If you haven't tried our silks yet, why not start with a sample set? This offer allows you to choose any three silk shades for £7 with free postage. This is a great way to see if the silks would work well for your project.

We also have a shade card scheme which is very helpful when it comes to choosing any particular colours you may need. Choose 8, 16 or 32 shades and we will send you a good sized snippet of each silk on a shade card, sufficient to stitch a test area and see exactly how the shade will look.

Our themed silks sets are the most economical way to buy the silks when you are looking for a variety of individual shades. These sets are heavily discounted and the more silks in the set, the bigger the discount.
