Japan Thread #5
Japan #5 is a wrapped thread used for surface stitches more so than in-and-out stitches. Couch it on the top of your design using a thin silk thread or Japan #1. Can also be used in long decorative stitches. Made to resemble a real metal thread.
Kreinik Japan Threads are synthetic, non-tarnishing gimps available that give the appearance of stitching with real metals. Use them anywhere, from Asian embroidery to charted needlepoint, painted canvas, samplers, ecclesiastical, goldwork, and other surface embroidery. Couch Japan #5 (tack it on the surface) using a thinner thread.
