This is an amazing product, a silk gimp turned into a purl shape by winding it around a silk thread. Very flexible I have seen it on so many embroideries used for tree trunks, grasses and in some cases as a filler on flowers in early 17th century embroiderers. A limited edition run, this is available in color 4525. Slightly larger than our silk purls, it would make great trees and could be used for hair as well or a lion's mane. Sold in 1 yard packages.
