From The Experts: What is Silamide?

Silamide is a twisted 2-ply thread that has a tooth to it and holds as you sew. It has a gorgeous texture, is strong and resilient. You can make a long line of "bugle" brick stitches and not fight the bugles staying together; the Silamide keeps the bugles in line. Silamide is good for all techniques including brick stitch, right angle weave, peyote, bead netting, spirals, square stitch and loom weaving.

A hand sewing Dream! by

5.0

Don't know why I waited so long to buy Silamide skeins! Actually, I do because it seems rather expensive for thread you don't use in your machine. But, after buying and trying I totally get it. Bought only white and black this first time as those colors are the ones I most frequently use in my alterations business. Today, I was hemming pants and did one leg with normal poly thread. Got a few knots along the way as normal. Then I went DUH and switched to silamide for the second leg. Absolutely no knotting, and the thread showed much less on the right side even though I was picking up only 1 or 2 threads on both hems. I will be buying more colors!!! I seem to do a lot of hand sewing, so silamide gets my vote. Thank you Wawak for offering this product and at a better price than most other places.

Great Thread by

5.0

This is wonderful thread for hand sewing -- it does not kink up. It is also great for using multiple lengths of thread to sewing things like rings on shades so you do not have to make as many passes. I have been using this thread for years and love it.
