Includes (1) Soie d’ Alger 7 ply, 45 meter hank.
This silk is loosly plyed and can be split easily.
It is made of the best quality spun silk (called strusas) which gives it an unrivalled regularity, lustrous and softness. Contrary to our competitors, our thread does not snarl in the needle and has a good tensile strength. It resists also very well to abrasion.
Dyed in skeins to guarantee an homogeneous colour.
In 1890, our Soie d’Alger colour chart had 2688 different colours gathered in 107 sets. It is precisely this chart which is used to add new colours.
It is spun and dyed in France, not from Algeria. The name “Alger” refers to a special domestic process.
