Item details

Genuine Benton & Johnson goldwork threads. The highest quality metal embroidery threads available.

This listing is for 18" of Pearl Purl, which has a shiny finish. Purls are made from a hard wire and coiled so that a hollow metal thread is made. This hollow thread looks like a string of beads and is pretty flexible. Can be formed into corners with the aid of tweezers with little problem. When purls are pulled/stretched, the wire becomes less flexible and rigid. This makes is easy to shape and handle when couched onto your goldwork embroidery. As the purls are stretched, they begin to look similar to a string of pearls.

The smallest size would be the Very Fine size; largest will be the No. 3.

No. 3 Pearl Purl: Approx 1.25 mm wide
No. 2 Pearl Purl: Approx 1.10 mm wide
No. 1 Pearl Purl: Approx 0.90 mm wide
Super Pearl Purl: Approx 0.75 mm wide
Very Fine Pearl Purl: Approx 0.60 mm wide
