It’s been a long time since I stitched with silk … and now I’m imagining some super-fine lettering, so I’ll need what I would characterize as continuous fiber (versus broken-fiber) floss. It needs to be loosely plied enough to do a split stitch, but not so loose that it frays or dis-integrates. I’m not too particular (ha!)
Back in the 90s I used Zwicky and it was so strong I could unply it and still be able to stitch without it self-destructing. But the last time I tried doing that a few years ago, I was unsuccessful. So I asked a nearby needlework store for a recommendation and got totally blank stares. Like “huh?”
So I’m turning to you all for advice … any suggestions???
