Kanagawa and Fujix Tire make the highest quality filament silk thread available worldwide. The thread construction is an even 3 ply twisted continuous filament silk thread. It is colofast and it has a high sheen.
Although designed mainly for hand embroidery, needlepoint, hand stitching, tayloring, and for quilting, this silk thread is also great for beading, half-hitching, micro-macrame, Cavandoli knotting, and for making tassels.
Personal note - I love this thread. It has a lovely feel and sheen. The filaments are sturdy and well plied. It does well with manipulation unlike a lot of other silk. The color range is great!
