This 3-ply finely twisted filament silk is dyed to match colors in the Kreinik Silk Mori® and Silk Serica® line. Together the three silks create a trilogy of design and texture options..

100% pure silk
20 meter, 3-ply spools
Dry clean only

Silk Bella is ideal for a variety of stitches in samplers, hardanger, crewel, stumpwork, crazy quilting, and needlepoint or canvas work. Use it straight from the reel as a 3-ply twisted thread for tent stitch, satin stitch, kloster blocks and other stitches that showcase its texture.

Both sides of the spool open; look for the side where the thread end is located. Insert your thumbnail under the cap, and rotate the spool while gently lifting the cap to release the thread (the cap should not pop off). Snap the lid shut to secure the unused portion.

Use lengths of silk no longer than 45cm (18 inches) for better thread control and reduced thread abrasion from repeated passes through the ground material. Use a needle large enough to ‘open’ the hole in the fabric to allow the silk thread to go through easily.

It is important to maintain Silk Bella’s twist as it comes from the spool to ensure uniform stitches from beginning to end. Since all of us as stitchers twist our needles a little bit while stitching, apply a slight reverse twist to your needle, or allow your needle to dangle every one or two stitches. This will prevent the softly twisted silk from untwisting or becoming too tightly twisted.

Dry clean only.
