Hi Kandy,
I have used a lot of Eterna silk floss, i like it very much.
But i must admit that it is nothing compared to Pipers silk floss. Pipers is
a  company in England.
Their silk is very fine, has no brokes in it, is completely shiny and very
nice to work with. But they dont have as much fine colours as Eterna has.
I use it for surface embroidery on silk.

> I have recently obtained some Eterna silk samples, and I'd like to solicit
opinions from anyone on the list who has tried these.  I am very pleased
with the look of them, but haven't had the opportunity to stitch.
> I have samples of the "stranded" (which is a flat filament silk), and the
twist 5, 8 and 12.  I managed to forget to order a sample of the "mini
twist" so any comment on that would also be welcome (i.e. how does it
compare to the stranded, and/or to other silk on the market).
> I am starting to merchant in the SCA in a small way, and I am considering
the Eterna as my silk line, but would love to have the input of the folks on
this list before I make my decision "permanent."
