217 Wisteria - Thread, Serenity (8/2 reeled)

Price: $5.50

Serenity—100% Reeled Silk—8/2 silk thread

--thread size is between a #5 and #3 perle
--this 2-ply thread has a bit softer twist than a typical perle thread
--each of the 2-strands is comprised of many parallel, unbroken silk filaments
--the minimal twist keeping the silk filaments together, paired with the softer ply twist, gives this silk thread the most sheen and luster of any of Treenway Silks’ threads
--can be divided (with care, as the silk filaments can separate from one another, especially in dry climates)

Hand-dyed in Colorado--color fast. We use acid dyes with heat and then rinse until water runs clear.
Wash in tepid or slightly warm water.

The silk is from the Bombyx mori silk worm, often referred to as "mulberry" silk.

10 yards (1/2 skein fits onto a standard sewing machine bobbin)

Stitching hints:

--smooth hands are extremely helpful—use a sugar scrub or other hand exfoliant before handling Serenity
--use a needle with a large eye
   --needlepoint canvas, try tapestry 20 or 22 needle
   --fabric, try chenille needle size 18 or  #1 Gold Eyed Milliners needle
--Keep your thread length no longer than 18”
--stitch going straight up and straight up as much as possible, especially if stitching on needlepoint canvas (do not drag your thread across your canvas)
--suitable for 13-mesh canvas (brick stitch) and for decorative stitches on 18-mesh canvas
