Threadaholic Alert! Au Ver A Soie 100/3

If you are a fan of Gay Ann Roger's counted canvaswork, you'll know she uses Au Ver A Soie's 100/3 silk perle* a lot.   You can read a bit about how she finds it useful on her website.

Then you can go shopping!  Have fun.  (By the way, I also shop at Needle in a Haystack a lot but if what you want isn't in stock, you'll have to wait a bit as they only ship once a week.)

*Vicky left a comment saying that 100/3 silk isn't a perle.  It is a tightly twisted strand, which is how I define a perle type thread.  But I imagine some folks think of perle threads as multiple strands twisted together.  Anyway, you can see  more photos of the thread here and decide for yourself what to call it.

  1. Threadneedle Street in Issaquah, WA also carries the entire line.

  2. Au Ver å Soie 100/3 is not a pearl and after rereading Gay Ann's wonderful article several times, I don't see where she does refer to it as a pearl!
