Threads in Natural Fibers


Pure Filament Silk Thread

Filament means that our silk threads are taken directly from the highest quality fibers of the silkworm cocoon. Filament silk is unique among natural fibers in that it does not have to be spun. It naturally occurs as long continuous strands. Thus, it will not fuzz out like spun silk. Its strength lies in this and also its elasticity,which allows it to expand and contract with the pull of fabric in response to body movement. Seams are smoother, stitches tend to disappear. Silk's molecular structure of tiny prisms gives it a smooth surface that mirrors the fabric color it is sewn through.
Both our three ply, Z-twist, sewing and buttonhole threads are superior for machine sewing and are a joy to stitch with by hand, as well. Because of silk's strength an elasticity, it can be used on most medium to lightweight textiles, including wool and fine glove leathers. Even today the finest men's wool suits are sewn with silk thread.
