Filoselle, when of good quality, is not, as some people suppose, a mixture of silk and cotton. It is pure silk, but of an inferior quality; and therefore cheaper. It answers many of the purposes of bobbin silk, but is not suitable for fine embroidery on silk or satin fabrics. It should be used also in strands, and the same remarks hold good with regard to its not being doubled, but cut in equal lengths.
Embroidery is the handicraft of decorating fabric and/or materials with designs stitched with thread using a needle. Embroidery may also use other materials such as metal strips, pearls, beads, quills, and sequins. Today sewing machines can be used to create machine embroidery. Needlework is is a broad term for the handicrafts of decorative sewing and textile arts. Anything that uses a needle for construction can be called needlework. The definition may expand to include related textile crafts such as a crochet hook or tatting shuttles.
