371 thread is a goldwork thread made of a cotton core wrapped with a strip of metal plate. This means that is is quite soft and easy to manipulate while stitching and has a lovely shine. It is similar to Japanese thread, but a little thinner.
Like all our metal threads, it is made here in the UK.
Use 371 thread by couching over it (usually in pairs for a smooth line, but singly if you prefer). Use either a matching or contrasting sewing thread with a coating of beeswax.
