Thread DMC Babylo #30
This is the first motif I have tatted from this book:
Once again, I tatted with thread and beads sent to me by generous tatters from afar. Both beads hail from the USA, from my Friend in North Carolina and the thread, which I really LIKE, crossed The Pond, sent for me to try by Frivole.
Babylo #30 is just the right thickness and is smooth and lovely to work with. Though a bit on the soft side, it holds its shape when I tatted at my usual not-too-tight tension. It is not quite a fuzzy as Cèbèlia #40, a close comparison in my opinion. I think I prefer Babylo. Not sure about that last comment.
It bodes a trial using the two.
