I have worked with many threads and yarns in my life so far on a professional level and in private. I came across threads and yarns the went straight in the bin to thread that I started to appreciate and to collect.
This post is a work in progress and and it started in January when I started to think about threads that I love and threads that I stay away from! Today I want to share with you my top ten threads to work with. These brands, are perfect for lace makers, crochet lovers, knitters, tatting friends and so much more….
The main reason for creating this top ten was to show people who love to create Romanian Point Lace that there are many brands that you can try out to create wonderful lace.
I want to thank those brands who supplied me with gorgeous threads and yarns for me to test! Thank you very much it, was a pleasure, to work with all of you and to introduce your products to the followers, and new readers who are interested to learn something new.
Ito means String or, thread , yarn in Japanese a cleaver name for a fabulous brand that stands out in the world of yarns and threads. If you never heard of them now it;s time to discover them! They are stunning. I received a few different threads to test out from paper thread, to steel blends and pure silk, etc…
I am intrigued by the quality and the fine design of the paper that it holds the information on. Strong to hold the cone and elegant fine that it almost not touching the thread. ITO is brand to stay in the market of yarns. Is makes a mark in quality and style. Please visit the website and check out the free pattern the varieties of colours, inside brands, yarns , needles, etc…
I received beautiful blends and fabulous colours. I started to experiment with Serishin Silk Colour Marsala and created a Romanian Point Lace Design. My goal is to find out what other type of threads and yarns work for Romanian Point Lace to give Romanian Point Lace lovers more options. Cotton is great and traditional, but there must be something else out there for this ancient lace and I believe to have found it in ITO brand.
Serishin is a luxurious silk yarn with a tremendous sheen and structure. It hold together great an is not weak. Marsala is soft and has a fabulous feeling while working with it. The colour is stunning and vibrant. Great on the skin and I can say that I would use it for lace making, clothing. This brand is also good for crochet and knitting. Its a fluid thread that creates a great crochet or knit fabric. A luxury and privilege to create with.
At the moment I am working on other projects using the other cones of threads received. I am exited to try out mixing the stainless steel TETSU.
The silk and Stainless steel can be formed and create a fabulous design. I believe that it makes a great Romanian Lace as well as great for knitting.
If you work with this brand before, please let me know, I am very interested in your opinion.
What makes this brand so great, is that it;s placed on a cone.
So make sure you stay tuned to the updates.
