As a serious thread junkie, I’m always on the lookout for nice embroidery threads, especially silks. Margaret brought my attention to this website, which looks like it offers some delectable silk threads for hand embroidery!
The website is called Mulberry Silks, and it’s located in the UK. It looks as if they carry a variety of types of threads, but for some reason, I seem to be drawn to the hand embroidery threads. Huh. I wonder why?!
The different palettes of color are really pretty! The silk is wound on spools, and the range of colors in all those lined-up spools just sets my thread-loving heart a-flutter!
Above is one of the brighter palettes…
… and this one, the Garden Palette, is by far my favorite (though it seems to be lacking yellow, doesn’t it?)
I suppose I’m not actually recommending the threads, because I haven’t tried them, so I don’t really know what they’re like. But they’re somewhat intriguing, aren’t they? I’ve added them to my Ever-Growing-List-of-Threads-I-Want-To-Try, though, so when I do, I’ll let you know what I think of them.
In the meantime, since I haven’t tried them, I thought I’d ask if any of you have? If you have tried Mulberry Silk hand embroidery threads, can you give the rest of us the low-down? Are they worth the investment, given shipping and exchange rate? I’d love to hear any opinions on them, especially before making that kind of investment in a thread purchase!
