Introduction To Embroidery
Embroidery is an ancient needlework technique that is believed to have originated in China. And like some artforms it could have evolved from unintended purposes like maybe stitching to join fabric or patchwork. It is not exactly known when embroidery was used primarily for art and decoration, but its influence moved across the Middle East then Europe.
The purpose of embroidering fabric like aprons, pillow & cushion covers, T-shirts, caps, blankets, shirts, denim, or even dresses is basically stitching a pattern using a needle and thread. Some embroidery styles include running the thread through beads, sequins, mirrors, or semi-precious stones.
Styles and stitches have evolved over the years and each region across the globe has some sort of uniqueness that depended on the materials used and occasion. Although an art form is predominantly done by hand, with the emergence of technology we have seen automated computerized embroidery machines produce fine and detailed results.

How to select embroidery threads
There are different embroidery threads types, which is why it's important to know what thread to use for your project as it affects the result of the design. Threads also called floss can be got in a wide range of fibers, colors, types, and weights. It is also very important to choose threads depending on the type of fabric, the fabric thread count, and the style of embroidery being done.
Any beginner should experiment a lot to understand whether the thread or fabric or needle size will give the desired result. Embroidery threads are available in wool, linen, silk, cotton, rayon, and novelty yarns. The ribbon is also used to create floral motifs in embroidery.

Natural Eri Silk Yarn 15/3 | 100g
Excellent products , thank you!
I enjoyed weaving with this yarn and it made a really soft scarf. Love the drape too.
I was very happy with the yarn since I dint know what to expect. Loved the intent and the natural ways and ingredients used. I had a small glitch with unraveling one of the skeins, was extremely difficult. Other 2 skeins were smooth. I certainly dint know what to expect but turned out well. I will complete my project with this yarn and share a picture. Thank you.
The yarn is one of its kind.. thinking we can use in summer and winter too.
Once I start knitting don't feel like keeping my project down.
Every knitters def must buy and try ..
When we are putting our effort and time ..don't feel like buying a cheap yarn.. the silk yarn is a must try.
Thanks for the prompt delivery..and helped me out to clear my doubt in the pattern I purchased from you.
Texture is smooth and soft. Runs easily while knitting. Finished outcome is beautiful!
I enjoyed knitting and gifting scarves made from the silk yarn.
I am a HANDLOOM EXPORTER and I Tried tapestry for the first time, it's an amazing art, I am just hoggin into this since I get the delivery of this loom from you guys .. whoever is running this business it really inspires people including me.
It was just awesome , looking forward to your new new collections
This is a beautiful yarn of exceptional quality. I love knitting with it as it is smooth and doesn't make my hands hot as I knit. I am hoping that all my family will love the scarves I am making as much as I do. I also like the subtle colours.
If i could give more than 5 stars I'd definitely would. From how the loom was flat packed and easy to assemble ( which means its so travel friendly) to the softness of the yarsns, i was just very pleasantly surprised. I bought the small loom kit and now wondering to have gotten the medium to at least start with! But will get to that once i start weaving, learn and need a bigger loom for bigger projects! Slight delay in the product arriving but all the same worth the wait!
Team Muzeart, looking towards more variety and greater products! Well done guys!
