Re: [Authentic_SCA] re sewing thread
- Are looking for thread for decorative stitching or thread for hand stitching
the hems rather invisibly ?
For rather invisible hem stitching, ravel out long threads from scrap or long
edges of the garment and hand stitch with the same thread as the fabric was
woven with. For decorative stitches, use a wool yarn of crewel or needlepoint
weight, spliting plys as needed. For woolen yarns you will need to find a shop
specializing in needlepoint supplies if you don't spin your own. If you spin
your own, use a fleece with a long fine staple, not hairy.
