Soie d'Alger 5 meter Skein in select golden and brown tones for basket stitching.
Soie d’Alger is a stranded spun silk with 7 plies, which are easily divided. Soft, lustrous and smooth, it is made from a spun silk called “strusas” which gives it unrivaled regularity for hand embroidery. Skein dyed in the traditional method to guarantee even, consistent coloration. Great care is taken to ensure this product is properly made. All seven piles cover tent stitch on 13.
If using this thread for the vertical stitches (basket "staves") while doing Ruth's Basket Stitch, you will need 1 skein per basket and will not separate the threads.
