I just finished unpacking the entire collection of Trebizond silk thread—all of the colors (over 190) with wonderful families for shading. Trebizond is a joy to stitch with—use it “as is” on 18 count canvas. The thread is a twisted filament silk with a very high sheen. Although you can use it as is, you can also separate it into 3 strands and lay it smooth and flat. For the colors, the sheen and the ease of use, Trebizond is one of my favorite threads to stitch with. 10 yard reels are $3.50 and available on our web site.
