THREADNEEDLE STREET HOME PAGE

RETURN POLICY ON THREAD: Like most needlework retailers, we do not allow returns on thread except when there has been an error on our part. Please keep this in mind before you buy. When in doubt, we recommend you buy and test a small amount prior to ordering larger quantities. We have very low shipping charges of approximately $3.35 (subject to change) sent to US addresses(subject to change) for small thread orders to enable you to do this affordably. There are many reasons for this, but a primary reason is that once the thread has left our store, we can no longer verify that it has been kept clean and unused, and in most cases, we can no longer tell which dye lot a given thread came from. Therefore you can be confident that the thread you buy from us is clean, unused, and that we can send you multiple skeins from a single dye lot when that is important. If you buy thread from a company that accepts returned thread, how do you know where the thread they sell you has been before it gets to you?

CONVERTING THREAD: From time to time we get requests to convert thread from one brand to another or one type to another. This can be an extremely difficult and time-consuming task and we regret that we are no longer able to offer this service.

SILK THREADS FOR HAND EMBROIDERY


This page last updated May 9, 2017.

Silk is the ultimate stitching fiber for many of us. It has a look and feel that no synthetic thread can match; it dyes beautifully, and has a soft, lovely sheen. The specific look of a given silk thread depends on the type of silk an individual thread is made from, and the amount of twist imparted to it (thread made from filament silk is shinier than spun silk, twisted silk looks more "corded" and flat silk has more of a smooth, satiny look). The manufacturers of most brands of silk (Au Ver a Soie, Soie Cristale, Silk Mori, etc.) recommend dry cleaning while a few (Trebizond and Zwicky) are supposed to be washable. Lighter shades of most brands of silk may be washable; but it is always a good idea to test each color before using it, even if the thread is supposed to be washable.

The first few types of silk thread listed are made by a French company named "Au Ver a Soie"® (this is pronounced "Oh verr ah swah"). This company has been manufacturing thread since 1820. Different types of threads that they manufacture include Soie d'Alger (pronounced "swah doll-zhay". Many people actually know and refer to soie d'alger as Au Ver a Soie® but technically Au Ver a Soie® is the name of the company that makes the threads Soie d'Alger, Soie Perlee, Soie Gobelin, Soie 100/3, , and Soie Chenille, among others. The word soie (pronounced swah) in French means silk, so you will see many different silk threads that incorporate the word soie in their name.

SOIE D'ALGER SILK from Au Ver a Soie® - This is a spun silk. Technically it is a 55/2/7 silk. This means that the size of the thread is size "55", it will separate into 7 individual stitching "threads," and each individual stitching "thread" is made of a 2-ply twist of the silk - the 2 plies are not meant to be divided. We have the full color range (620 colors!) available. This silk is sold by the strand or by the hank. Strands measure approximately 42". Hanks are 45 meters (approximately 49 yards). We try very hard to keep all colors in stock, but if you need full hanks of a color, most of the time these will have to be special-ordered for you, so please allow an extra 2 weeks for hanks.

Price per strand of Soie d'Alger (39"-42") ..... 85¢
Price per 49 yard (45 meter) hank (normally a special-order, please allow 2 weeks) ..... $27.00

soieparis.jpg - 2766 BytesSOIE DE PARIS from Au Ver a Soie® is the newest offering from the Au Ver a Soie® company of France (manufacturers of soie d'alger among other fine threads). It is a six-ply thread made of twisted filament silk, so it is very strong and shiny. With all the debate as to the use of the terms "ply" and "strand" what I am referring to is that as it comes off the spool, this thread divides into 6 individual stitching threads, much as DMC floss or stranded cotton. The advantage of this is that you can use any number of individual strands to get a stitching thread of the desired weight/thickness.

Soie de Paris comes in colors that coordinate with soie d'alger, so that you may use both in your designs to get a different texture, without changing color. Periodically colors of soie d'alger that were formerly available turn into "inactive" colors (not necessarily discontinued, but out of stock with no time frame for when they will be dyed again). We are not notified of changes in color availability until we try to reorder, so the list of available colors is subject to change without notice. Following is a list of currently available color numbers of Soie de Paris:
Blanc (French for white) Creme (French for cream) Noir (French for black)

Soie de Paris comes on 5 meter (5.5 yard) spools for $4.00 per spool.

SOIE PERLEE from Au Ver a Soie® (pronounced swah pear-lay) is another thread made by this fine French company. It is shiny and tightly twisted. It is about the diameter of #8 pearl cotton. It comes in a different color range than it did several years ago - the current color range is actually far more extensive than it was in the past.

Price per 16 meter spool of Soie Perlée (new French color range) ..... $3.00

SOIE GOBELIN from Au Ver a Soie® is similar to Soie Perlée, but finer. It too comes in a somewhat different color range than in the past. The current color range for Soie Gobelin is:
Blanc (white) Creme (ecru) Brut (dark ecru)

SOIE OVALE from Au Ver a Soie® is a French flat silk. Flat silk is a beautiful, untwisted silk with a lustrous, satiny finish. It is harder to work with than other silks, having a tendency to snag, but with experience you can learn to handle it. This thread USED to be sold in the U.S. under the name Soie Platte but in France it has been called Soie Ovale, and from now on this is the term that will be used for it in the U.S. as well. These come on 15 meter spools and sell for $2.50. The range of available colors does fluctuate as news colors are added and older colors that are sold out and not currently being dyed added to a list of "inactive" colors. We are not notified when this happens so information on our website may not be 100% up-to-date in terms of which colors are available. We regret that trying to show colors of this thread on the internet with any accuracy is too difficult to attempt at this time.

TREBIZOND is wonderful! A shiny, twisted silk, about twice the weight of soie perlée (similar in weight to size 5 pearl cotton), this thread is supposed to be colorfast (of course it's always advisable to test any thread for washability under your own conditions). A very good fit on 18 mesh needlepoint canvas. Please note that numbers below are mostly in numerical order, but with the addition of a few four digit numbers, those numbers are listed with other colors that they go with.

There is no actual thread color card, but approximate matches appear in parentheses following the color name (D refers to a DMC number; A refers to an Anchor number; NM means no match).

SILK CHENILLE EMBROIDERY THREAD (Soie Chenille à Broder) made by the Au Ver a Soie® company is a type of thread that has a long history but that had disappeared from existence until recently. This wonderful, plush, velvety thread resembles a caterpillar (caterpillar in French is chenille), albeit a very luxurious one. It should not be confused with chenille yarns manufactured for knitting, some of which are now being sold as chenille embroidery threads - this is the "real McCoy." Currently available in 30 colors, most numbers are the same as Soie d'alger color numbers, and colors are similar, although the chenille construction changes the thread color slightly. French color names appear after the color number, but can be misleading (the 2913 "violet" family is actually a geranium pink family).

Silk chenille colors are:

Blanc (white)

Brut (ecru)

Noir (black)

131 Turquoise (pale aqua)

621 Capucine (golden yellow)

945 Grenat (deep red)

1046 Ophelia (dark raspberry)

1441 Myosotis (pale dusty blue)

1834 Vert Bouteille (med. green)

2123 Cigale Light (lt. yellow green)

2124 Cigale Med. (med. yellow green)

2126 Cigale Dark (dark yellow green)

2623 Acajou (orange)

2913 Violet Antique Lt. (peach) (inactive color, not currently available)

2915 Violet Antique Med. (med. coral)

2916 Violet Antique Dark (dk. coral red)

2941 Azalee (pink)

3221 Gobelins (light gray)
