Check thread is a goldwork thread made of a cotton core wrapped with a narrow strip of metal plate. It is similar to smooth passing thread, but it has a zig-zag wiggle, which is perfect for adding texture and variety to your goldwork designs.
Like all our metal threads, check thread is made here in the UK.
Use check thread by couching over it (usually in pairs for a smooth line, but singly if you prefer). It can be used in combination with other couching threads to great effect. Use either a matching or contrasting sewing thread with a coating of beeswax.
8x2 is the smallest, 16x3 is medium-size and 36x6 is the largest.
