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.)
For more of Gay Ann's lessons about threads, use the Next Button to read about other thread types.
*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.
