  • $6.50
Shipping calculated at checkout.

This gorgeous gima silk tape (also known as Straw Silk) is composed of six strands of mulberry silk combined to create a ribbon-like structure. This silk is imported from the factory in Japan that produces it. Gima means “like linen,” called so because the thread has the feel of linen. As you use it, it softens up. It takes dye beautifully and is a pleasure to weave with. Needle pointers will love using it on a 14 or 18 canvas. We have used it for: weaving, embroidery, needlepoint, kumohimo, crochet. 

The bobbins hold 12 yards of silk.
