D’ Alger 5m skeins 0100 – 0500


SKU: N/A Category: Tags: , , , ,

Alger silk, 7 strands, in a palette of 605 colours for embroidery and tapestry, available in 5 meter skeins. This silk is loosely plyed and can be split easily. It doesn’t come from Algeria. The name “Alger” refers to a special domestic process.
It is made of the best quality spun silk (called strusas) which gives it an unrivalled regularity, lustrous and softness. The thread does not snarl in the needle and has a good tensile strength. It resists also very well to abrasion.
Dyed in skeins to guarantee a homogeneous colour.
