    Magenta - Wavy Gimp 1.5mm wide - Hand Spun & Dyed

    This wavy gimp cord has been hand made exclusively for Gina-B Silkworks, using traditional passementerie techniques. 

    We have commissioned a range of passementerie cords (known in the trade as 'lines') from a leading passementerie workshop. These beautiful cords and trims can be used to create stunning decorative textiles.

    This gimp is made by wrapping fine viscose rayon thread over a twisted central cotton core, resulting in a stiff cord with a slight texture. This cord has a width of approx 1.5mm. The gimp is then hand dyed, which means that the core is also dyed - very important to ensure that no white shows through.

    Wavy gimp is also known as facette guipure, crinkly, textured.

    The texture is very subtle and simply catches the light giving a little bit of 'sparkle'. The effect work especially well when placed between smooth gimp.

    This is perfect for a variety of passementerie techniques, especially knots and of course tassel making. It is also suitable for couching in embroidery, using alongside soutache in jewellery and for macrame and weaving. 

    Price is per metre

    Where possible, lengths over 1m will be cut as a continuous length
