The silk on these spools is the same exact silk as what comes on the cards. Fujix Tire Silk #16 Buttonhole Twist Thread is a 3-ply twisted continuous filament silk thread of superb quality. It compares to the Kanagawa 1000 denier silk thread. Mainly used for hand embroidery, needlepoint, and hand stitching for quilting. Also great for beading, half-hitching, micro-macrame, cavandoli tapestry knotting and tassels. Colorfast with a high sheen.
7 colors available in 200 meter spools 200m (220 yds) - Thread Ø 0.25mm - Z Twist - Made in Japan
Personal note - These spools are especially designed for tayloring, but they are great for anyone wanting a larger output. Plus the thread is rolled onto spools, so there is no creases. Lastly you will get the equivalent of 10 cards for a fraction of the cost. The colors other than Black & White are not exact equivalent from existing Fujix Tire Silk colors. I have placed in the picture the closest color available in cards for color comparisons.
$19.00 per spool on special (regular price $20.00)
