    • Lorikeet is a 9-ply 100% Australian wool. Suitable for all forms of embroidery it comes in a wide range of colors and shades.

    • Luminescence is an overdyed Soie 100/3 that comes in most of the same colors as Gloriana Silk.

    • Princess Perle is an exceptionally lustrous and shiny three ply, non-divisible perle thread ideal for 18 count canvas. It is also beautiful on 25 count linen and is approximately equivalent in size to cotton perle #5. Twisted more tightly than cotton perle, this silk perle has the sparkle and strength that cotton lacks.

This high quality and lovely thread is widely used by Crazy Quilters and is available from Gloriana in beautiful hand-dyed variegated colors. Gloriana Princess Perle Petite is also highly suitable for stitching on canvas and linen for both counted thread and surface embroidery.

    • 12-strand Silk Floss is a spun silk thread with silk's beauty, luster, and shine, but doesn't catch on your hands. The size of one strand is comparable to other stranded silks, such as SplendorSoie Cristale, and Needlepoint Inc. SilkGloriana Silk is soft and remarkably easy to stitch with.

      12-Strand Silk
    • Silk Ribbons are lovely for embellishment or stitching and have been used in embroidery and quilting for many years. Gloriana Silk Ribbons are all hand-dyed, most in colors to match the 12-strand silk. Gloriana offers 4 mm, 7 mm and the hard-to-find 13 mm size.

      Silk Ribbon
    • Tudor Silk New is a 12 strand 120/2 silk floss. Each strand is approximately half the weight of a "normal" strand of silk floss, making this thread ideal for higher count stitching on 40 and 45 count fabrics. New in 2012!
