These faux threads are my favorites for working 17th century metal stitches such as the plaited braid, reverse chain, ceylon, ladder and the like when learning. The faux set is great for learning the stitches before you progress to working with the more expensive real metal threads.
These threads should be used with a Japanese needle as it will both keep the thread from shreading in the needle and will open a nice hole in your linen to pull the thread through. The #9/10 Japanese needle works well for the all these Wyres.
