      SSF = single stranded fine. People also call it superfine. This is about half the size of regular silk floss. Great for over 1 stitching on 36ct or higher, or over 2 on 46ct+ @ggggaea

      It is also very nice for backstitching or when you want to add some definition to your stitches without thick outlining.

      Here is an example where I used SSF for backstitching: bird’s legs and outline (black) and flower stalk (BeVexed).

      Pattern is a freebie from Kissy Cross called Wagtail.

      @veena Super nice, crisp details. What count of fabric did you use?

      Gorgeous @veena! It does look fine a crisp, like Jill said.

      Hope Vikki eventually Dyes SSF again. My 46ct project (Over2) is tough getting those reg flosses through the tiny holes!
