Wonderfil Specialty Threads teamed up with designer, Alison Glass, to create a vibrant collection of luxury perle cotton threads suitable for all your stitching needs from hand embroidery and applique to crochet and Sashiko.
This gorgeous 2-ply 100% long staple Egyptian cotton thread is double-gassed and mercerized, resulting in a wonderfully smooth and lustrous finish that allows the thread to glide beautifully through all types of fabrics. The thread’s tight twist creates beautifully firm stitches while its surface sheen produces a luxurious finish to your stitching project.PRODUCT DETAILS:
I purchased all of the Alison Glass colors and really enjoy using it in my embroidery. Lately, I have been drawing designs on cotton tea towels and stitchin' them up. I wanted a thread with more dimension & texture. This perle #8 is perfect, soft and comes in such stunning colors I got them all!
I plan to try it out on my denim embellishing projects as well but I'm still playing with Spaghetti Garden at the moment!
I'm completely partial to Wonderfil perle cotton--it is far and away the highest quality of any I've tried. Add the gorgeous colors of Alison Glass to the mix and you've got a winner!
Though it says "flora" to me more than "fauna: the color choices included make gorgeous, saturated work suitable for many subjects. In fact, with a ball of white you have a very versatile palette to use for a variety of subjects. One strand beads well with seed beads and larger beads too!
