Smooth purl is a metal used for goldwork embroidery. It has a lovely shiny smooth appearance and will enhance any piece of embroidery. Cut the metal into lengths and thread onto a sewing thread like a bead.
This order is for a 50cm length of Art Gold number 6.
Please note, there is no gold content in Art Gold (see gilt for 0.5% gold). Art Gold mellows in colour over time so is great to use if you want something that doesn't tarnish as fast as gilt smooth purl. Art Gold has a more brassy colour than gilt
