We’re so excited to announce the arrival of our latest and greatest 3wt and 5wt Eleganza perle cotton in the fabulous Sue Spargo colour line! In addition to the already existing 8wt thread, these heavier weights are perfect for additional textures, dimensions, and contrast for stunning projects. Let’s take a look!
This lineup shows the difference in weights starting at 8wt (left) to 5wt (middle) to 3wt (right). The heavier the thread, the higher up it sits on the fabric, and the more visible it becomes.
Eleganza by Sue Spargo is the ultimate choice for wool appliqué, hand embroidery and sashiko. Available in 36 solid and 54 variegated colours, it’s also double-gassed and mercerized, resulting in a wonderfully smooth and lustrous surface that glides through all types of fabrics. You can check out a full list of her colours here.
Combining different threadweights in the same area make for a beautiful variety, even when using the same stitch! Choosing matching variegated threads adds additional contrast for an easy and perfect colour palette.
Sue Spargo loves to pair Eleganza with wool. The natural appearance of both fibres make a charming team that is delicate, beautiful and just a little bit funky! Wool also carries a lot of texture, making it an excellent baseline for beautiful stitches laid overtop. Every piece just begs to be touched.
With Love and Threads,
