The cord is made up of three strands of gold that are twisted into a cord. Each strand of gold is made up of a thread core with a gold wire wrapped around the core so it does not show. The twists are couched down by sewing the stitch at the same angle as the twist of the cord so that the stitches hide in the twists and are invisible. A couching down thread of the same colour is used to sew down the twisted cord.
This gold twist thread is antique and is approx. 1cm across the thread.
Ideal for embroidery or antique embroidery restoration.
