Hi,

Gutterman was the first silk I ever tried to use and I'll be honest, I don't 
like it for embroidery. It is tightly twisted, with gives it a different hand 
and properties. I *love* it for handsewing, though, it's wonderful and strong. 
I've also played with fingerloop braiding it into fine cords, which works 
fairly well. I don't have the buttonhole twist, I have the jewelry silk that's 
finer and has a pretty tight twist. 

What project are you planning to use the silk for? 

Cheers,
Gabrielle
