Japan Gold best represents the historical thread used. A metal "thread" wrapped around a silk core. I have done a few pieces. I tried using Japan #2, but personally found it hard to work with. I then used #7....toooo heavy for the silk. Next I am going to try #4.
Please to write Mistress Richenda Coffin, OL of Caid for more information. She taught a class last fall at the InterKingdom Intensive Needlework Symposium on Opus Anglicanum. It was great. In addition, her piece won the Opus Anglicanum category at Estrella. She also wrote a recent article for Tournaments Illuminated on the subject.
