Au Ver A Soie Soie d'Alger Silk Embroidery Thread - Blue Green

Made by the same company since the late 1800s, Au Ver A Soie, Soie d'Alger Silk Embroidery thread remains one of the highest quality threads available today. Soie d'Alger is a stranded spun silk with 7 easily divisible plies. Soft, lustrous and smooth, it is made from a spun silk called "strusas" which gives it unrivaled regularity for hand embroidery. The thread is dyed in skeins to guarantee homogeneous color. It does not snarl or pill and has good tensile strength. 

Soie d'Alger is ideal for cross stitch, hand embroidery, tassel making, canvas work and more.

Luxurious and reliable

Using this is a dream. It is so beautifully smooth, the sheen is exceptional, and the fine stands allow for some really fantastic level of detail in my embroidery.

This stuff is so soft and gorgeous, and I haven't had tangling issues

I bought this for one specific project, but I think I'm going to end up having to own the whole collection, because my mind is already full of ideas for incorporating it into all my embroidery.

Using this floss feels like such a luxury. Highly recommend!

Gorgeous thread!

I am completely in love with all the Soie D’Alger threads! The skeins are easy to split, the colors are gorgeous, and the silk is just so lovely to stitch with. There is a beautiful sheen that you don’t get with cotton. I’ve decided I’m not holding onto this for some perfect project, but I’m going to use it often to make my embroidery special all the time.
