This gimp is made by wrapping a gold thread around a thick cotton core. It looks like beads on a string and is about 1.5-2mm in diameter. A 1 yard length. It can be couched down with a thin gold thread to make a very textured line.
Silk satine gimp is a thick, shiny gimp thread that can be used for outlining and fill for grounds, trees, flowers, and water. It can be laid next to other outlining threads to vary texture. It is about 1 mm in diameter and is sold in 3 meter lengths. Use Japanese rice glue to treat the ends so they don't fray and you get a good cut as it can not be sunk into the ground fabric.
Pictures show it next to silk gimp, which is switchable, and silk serpentine which is similar in size.

This is a limited edition thread. Silk check is made the same way silk purls are made but instead of using a round 'needle', the 'needle' is triangle shaped and rotates while the check is formed. This rotation of the triangle 'needle' leaves a bend in the coil that rotates around the thread, creating a fantastic texture. Silk Check can be used in all the same ways that silk purl can be used to add a nice contrast to the smooth silk purl. There is a extra photo that shows the sizes of the silk purls compared to the silk check as well as looking at the end to contrast the round vs triangle shape. Boxed in 18" lengths.
Small silk laid down trim is a useful small size of a loopy trim. I like to use it to add a stand-up layer between silk purls, a nice line of trim such as a stem or pull it out a bit so the loops don't overlap anymore and use it as the wire edge for leaves and petals.
Each box has 18" of the trim that is laid down, it can be gently pulled as shown in the video to make a longer length of small silk scallop trim.
If there is a color you are looking for not in stock, email as I might have stock to make.
Gilt Folien No 411 - small cup shaped die cut spangles that are patterned on both sides. They can be held down with a bead, stitches, or a large french knot. 1 gram (approx. 20-24 in bag).
Gilt Folien No 198 - small flower shaped die cut pieces that are held down by stitch over them 2-3 times with a gold or colored thread. 1/2 gram (about 14) or 1 gram packages (about 28).
This is one of the most exciting product finds in years for me - spangles that are shaped! These spangles are made the way our normal ones are, but are then stamped with a die again to make them either textured or have a flower type shape. There are two which were sent in the Frostings Box 6 (No. 22 and No. 24) and two NEW ones (No 27 and No 23).
They are gilt and packaged in bags of 1 gram each. They are almost 4-5 mm in diameter. Depending on the spangle type, there are between 20-23 per gram.
You can imagine all kinds of ways to embellish them by using colored thread to secure them, a colored silk purl chip, a bead, etc.
