Available in 5 m skein in 18 colours from the Soie d'Alger range.
Envision a bolt of the finest velvet draped on a table. As your fingers stroke the shimmering surface, you notice how smooth, even and plush it is to the touch. Now this sensation is available in a thread for embroidery ! Soie Chenille Broder, Silk Chenille for Embroidery at first glance resembles a lustrous velvety cord. If you have stitched with a chenille thread made for knitting, which by comparison is neither silky to the touch nor smooth, you will not have experienced how much more luxurious silk chenille made for hand embroidery really is!
The word chenille in French literally translated means 'caterpillar', which precisely describes the appearance of this thread. In other words, the little fibers of silk stand out at right angles, like the hairs of a caterpillar.
