Au Ver a Soie's Soie Perlée is a 3-ply twisted filament silk that is smooth, soft and lustrous. This single stranded thread is non-divisible with a thickness between Size 8 and Size 12 perle cotton. Unlike Perle Cotton thread, Perle Silk (Soie Perlée) expands to fill a stitched area when light tension is used. Soie Perlée has a natural sheen that can hold up to canvas work without losing its luster. Each charming wooden spool has 17.5 yards (16m) of thread and can be used for a wide variety of stitch work, including hand embroidery, cross stitch, needlepoint, tassel making and more.

Pictures don’t do this gorgeous thread any justice! Vintage but not bland that’s for sure. This is easy to work with and you can’t beat the sheen.
I bought the set of 6 vintage color threads. These are 3 ply, not dividable and are the most beautiful silks I have ever stitched with-leaving stitches with a lovely sheen. I've already ordered several more colors. And I'm old enough to remember when all thread came on wooden spools--The perfect touch for such fine thread. You will not be disappointed.
Absolutely love this thread .... it is the best I have used ... I slow stitch and sashiko ... perfect for these !!!
Beautiful set. These colors are soft and really have a vintage vibe. The silk thread is so easy to work with. I would love to have every color!!! Give these silk threads a try. You will be glad you did.
