Yellow 04 - 50 Wt. Silk Thread (Made in Japan)

50 wt. 100% silk spooled thread from Japan in Yellow 04. This smooth, three-ply, monofilament, 50 weight silk thread is the perfect thread for machine or hand sewing. It is incomparable for the art of hand sewing as it glides through your fabric with amazing ease! This strong, yet delicate thread is excellent for sewing rolled hems in light fabrics such as chiffon and crepe de chine. It is wonderful for tailoring, quilting and appliqué work. It is pliant, has a deep lustrous sheen, and is an amazing pleasure to sew with.
