Silk ‘n Colours are 12 ply, divisible, 100% Silk hand-dyed threads
Initially split the thread into 3 x 4 strands or plies then they can be finally split into one or more strands for finer work as required by the project.
As a guide it is recommended that 2ply be used on 28 count cloth and 1ply on 32 count cloth or higher but it always sensible to do a test sample in order to get the correct weight prior to starting a new piece.
