Buy Soutache - Simply Soutache Review

I'd like to introduce Teressa from Simply Soutache, Teressa is in Tulsa, Oklahoma and has an online store where you can buy Soutache - American made Soutache Braid and supplies, including threads and backings. You can also find her on Facebook.

Simply Soutache sells a 2mm braid made in America, some colours are polyester and some rayon. Teressa sent me a yard each of pink, dark pink and brown so I could use it and give some feedback.

I decided to make a brooch, it's coming into winter here so these will be fun on beanies, hats and scarves. The dark pink is polyester the others are rayon.

The braid has minimal fraying, although I still use a dab of fraycheck. The polyester braid fitted well with the rayon ones.

The braid fits together well, is easy to identify the herringbone direction so you can make sure braid is all laying the same way, it stitches well, curves easily and a pleasure to use.

Price - at .59c per yard is very comparable to the other brands I like to use

So Result - I like this braid, it feels nice to use and is economical

I love to hear from visitors so please leave a comment
