Thread Applications:

  • Soie d'Alger is perfect for cross stitch and hand embroidery on linen. It is particularly nice to use in contrast with Soie Perlee in the same design---one thread having a high sheen, the other a soft lustre.
  • Soie d'Alger is durable for canvas work. Does not pill.
  • All seven plies cover tent stitch on 13 mesh.
  • Soie d'Alger makes the most beautiful cording and tassels for needlework finishing.

Please note there may be slight discrepancies in color based on monitor RGB levels and calibrations.
