Silk Lame’ is a fairly new introduction by Rainbow Galleries. It’s a blend of 72% silk, 18 % rayon and 10% metalized polyester. There are two weights, one for 18 count canvas and another for 13 count canvas.

I really enjoy using it—it gives a subtle sparkle and is so easy to stitch with. I have found that the thread for 18 count covers color-on-color on 13 or 14 count canvas—the 13 count version can be heavy. We carry all the colors for 18 count in stock and can order the 13 count colors. Add this thread to your stash and you’ll want all of them.
