Rainbow Gallery Subtlety
Rainbow Gallery Subtlety is a very tightly twisted silk pearl that is close in size to pearl cotton #12. The tight twist gives it a very sharp and crisp appearance. Maintain the twist as you stitch so that it does not knot up on the back of the canvas. Subtlety is dye matched to colors of Splendor, Grandeur and Elegance. It is a great fiber for stitching fine counted work and for use in Hardanger. Since it is dye matched to the other silks Subtlety can be used in conjunction with them to give even more texture. The color numbers are the same across the lines, but the prefixes are different. This is a very strong fiber that can be used in pulled work without breaking.
