The core of this thread is silk fused with real gold. Each ply is comparable in thickness to Coats & Clark's cotton/poly sewing machine thread.
These were purchased these from a very reputable weaving house in Kyoto that has been out of business since the 70s. Once this inventory is gone, it is gone. This is quite possibly the last real gold fused thread you will find.
This gorgeous gold thread is perfect for weaving, kumihimo, embroidery and any other craft that needs a kick of beautiful gold!
This gold thread comes in two options: solid and two-tone.
The solid bobbin is 75 yards of one shade of gold (a very rich, bright gold).
The two-tone consists of two strands spun on the bobbin at the same time. One is the bright gold and the other is a more coppery gold. The total yardage is also 75, with 37 1/2 yards of the bright gold color and 37 1/2 yards of the coppery gold color.
