Review Guidelines

Great glitz
I am a soumack weaver and I needed silver thread for one arm of a pentacle design and this thread was really my only choice. It works but is difficult to weave with - the threads separate and it is quite stiff which makes joining a pain. The effect is worth all the effort even though the piece is still on the loom and I can only see the back and it looks stunning. It is hard to thread into a needle and a chenille is best because of the eye size. The thread is also somewhat larger than normal embroidery thread and I had to remove one strand to get it to match the other threads in size - the larger thread would not pack down evenly with the standard threads. All in all a difficult product to use but the results are outstanding from a design point of view. I Recommend This ProductSkill Level: Expert
