Say hey to the newest thread in the shop, Planet Earth silks. This newbie is going to be one of the most popular threads in town. Gorgeous contemporary colors, 175 of them, have all the sheen of silk and none of the stranding. Softer to the touch than vanilla ice cream, it will cover 13-14 basketweave and long stitches. (Dill, #53, makes great grass–and it never needs mowing.) Planet Earth silks slip through canvas so easily you will believe you actually can stitch up your stash! The advertising says “no pilling”, but as with any natural fiber this lovely silk will show wear by the end of the stitching length, so grab a new needle, a length of Planet Earth silk and get stitch happy!

All 175 colors are available (of course) on our web site.
