This week this seriously luscious floss arrived in the mail. It's Soie D'Alger Silk Embroidery Thread and at GBP 3.15 (over 5$) per 5 meter skein I only allowed myself to just buy a few skeins. If I really (like: realy, really) like this thread I can always gradually add more to my stash.
The colours of this 7 stranded floss are beautiful (at least the ones I chose) and it's amazingly soft. I did a little try out yesterday on my long running 'Bear & Fish' project (the flower in the background) but thought my shading looked a bit chunky so I need to experiment a bit more to be able to give you the full verdict on this floss. I do think it is quite easy to work with it, comparable with regular six stranded embroidery thread.
