Vintage Japanese Kinkoma Thread
Vintage Japanese Kinkoma Thread (also known as Japan Thread) is a beautiful bright gold or silver dimensional thread that's used in goldwork embroidery. It's great for outlining your embroidered elements or adding bold details. It's also perfect for wrapping and other mixed media applications.
You'll get 10 yards of thread that have been hand-wound on a wooden spool which measures 2" tall x 1-1/4" in diameter at the widest points.
Here you can see where I embroidered and added beading to this fabric that had a batik printed bird and then I outlined it with this same gold Kinkoma / Japan thread and stitched it down by couching over it with gold metallic thread. (This also works beautifully if you want to outline an embroidered block print.)
Outlining with Japan Thread really finishes a piece and provides a subtle but unmistakable bit of blingy texture and shine.
