If you’ve been whipping rods with a Japanese filament silk thread, this is most likely the stuff you’ve been using, regardless of the name under which it was sold. It is very high quality silk and the price/spool is quite reasonable.
Head’s Up! YLI is becoming increasingly scarce.
Stop….NEW NOTE 2/21/20…Until further notice, please pay for all orders containing YLI silks using PayPal (which makes it easy for us to issue refunds as needed; we CANNOT issue refunds promptly if you pay by Credit Card because the bank’s security protocols ensure that your card data is erased the instant the transaction is processed). If you need more than two spools of a color, please email to see if we have enough in stock…we might not even have one or two spools because we must update inventory manually and we’re often a day behind on this process. While we appreciate the large orders we’ve been receiving recently, we cannot fill most of them. The YLI brand silks went out of stock with our distributor. We appreciate all the seamstresses who have found our shop and started ordering recently, however we’re in the same position as all your former suppliers. We are very low on inventory because we’re unable to restock most colors.
We STRONGLY suggest ordering another brand, either Tire (size #50) or Kimono (size #100).
63 color options available in YLI #50. Working from the silk chart, please order by color code. The first set of numbers reflects the #50 color code.
