Raffia Silk Paper Thread
$9.50 ($8.64) / pack

Raffia is 100% silk and looks similar to paper Raffia, but is more shiny. It is a lovely thread for all sorts of interesting textural effects. Raffia is a long ribbon like thread constructed of a series of fibers bonded together to make a unique thread. The thread is great for clothing, grass, wicker or tree trunks. Because the thread has a shine, the area will stand out in your motif. When stitching, use shorter lengths of thread in the needle and use a slightly larger needle than required for the canvas. Use caution when threading the needle to prevent splitting the thread down the middle. Each pack contains 1.82 metres (2 yards).
