Au Ver À Soie® Soie 100/3, is a three ply highly twisted spun silk. Made in France. Uses include for embroidery, counted thread, canvas work, fine sewing, machine and long-arm quilting. The thread thickness is slightly finer than a single ply of Soie d’Alger.
Glides nicely through linen. Most linen stitchers prefer to use this on 37, 38, 45 and 53/63 count linens. Top and bottom of spool lift for securing thread in place. 4 plies of Soie 100/3 will cover 18 count canvas in tent stitch. Try it for a different looking texture!
Soie 1003 provides sharp, crisp delineation of your stitches for canvas and linen applications. Vary the number of plies for outlining in one shade darker to add depth or raised effect
