About Bullion & Metal Thread Embroidery

Purl or perl (in English) and bullion (in French) has historically been used to add rich texture to hand embroidery.  It is a traditional embellishment for ecclesiastical, military, ceremonial, and formal attire.

Purl is made from fine metal wire which is coiled into a spring-like spiral.  It is typically cut into short pieces, using a sharp scissors, and stitched into place like beads, with the needle passing through the spiral’s hollow center.  Sometimes these purl beads are stitched over padding.  Longer purl pieces may be couched onto the fabric.

 

Traditional purl comes in various diameters and several styles, including:

Smooth Purl (English), Bullion Brillant (French).  Made by wrapping a flat wire around a cylindrical form, smooth purl has a bright, shiny appearance.

Rough Purl (English), Bullion Matte (French).  A round wire is wrapped around a cylindrical form.  Rough purl has a dull surface.

Check Purl (English), Frieze Brillant (French).  Check purl is made by wrapping round wire around a square form.  The resulting angles create a rough, sparkling texture.

Pearl Purl (English), Jaceron (French).  A slightly heavier, round wire is wrapped around a cylindrical form.  As its name suggests, it resembles a string of tiny beads.  Pearl purl is usually stretched slightly to separate the "beads" and then couched onto fabric.  It is often used to outline embroidered motifs.

 

In addition to the traditional purl styles, contemporary manufacturers are also producing a variety of new shapes.  And purls are now available in an array of colors, as well as the standard gold and silver tones.

 

When working with it, remember that bullion is delicate.  It’s easily stretched beyond its elastic limit, and after that, will not return to its original shape.

 

Use this metal thread to trim your SCA, Renaissance Faire, Medieval, LARP, LOTR (Purl embroidery was used extensively in the costumes for the Lord of the Rings movies), costume, or other sewing project.  Ideal for traditional embroidery on a chasuble or other church vestment.  It would also be wonderful on an evening gown, prom dress, clubbing, or wedding attire.  Stitch it onto home décor items, such as pillows or table runners.  Add it to Mardi Gras, Christmas, pageant, dance recital, belly dance, skating, or other specialty projects.
