These threads include Artificial silk, metallic cord and hand sew threads, various Sadi threads which are their Purls, and Shisha Glass mirrors.

Art Silk


Art Silk

Is a 6 strand Viscose floss, very fine with a high gloss, like all synthetic threads can be tricky to use.  Rajmahal suggests using a slightly damp sponge and running the thread thru this before use.  I have found that Thread Heaven makes it better to stitch with, or stripping the threads, wetting them with fabric spray (dab a little on your fingers) then letting the thread dry for a few seconds.  This thread is similar in weight and style to Cifonda.
8m skein $2.50
