For medium-fine counted work, I really like the 100/3
Gutermann silk thread. It's smooth and even. (I find
Splendor kind of fuzzy.) At $4 for 100m, it's quite
affordable. It might be too fine for 35-count, but
there are larger sizes available which I haven't tried.
Here's a link where you can get it.
