ITO Iki Silk Thread

ITO Iki

Thin, pure filament silk, slightly twisted for hand embroidery and applique.
Use multiple threads for color effects. Can also be used as an add-on thread for knitting. Add gorgeous,lustrous colour to any project. 

The mulberry silk has an unsurpassable sheen and unique softness. Six filaments are loosely plied to a thickness of 1/71 NM or 21/6 Tram. Very fine embroidery lines and silk shading effects can be achieved by using a single thread or even splicing the thread. Multiple threads are used for stronger lines and filling areas (usually 2-8 strands). Traditionally multiple strands are also twisted by hand to achieve a different texture. Threads of different colors can be nicely blended and fine color transitions created.
