Embroidery blog post, Part One: Embroidery | Wilde Hunt Corsetry. "...fragment of red velvet thought to be from Spain circa 1400-1510, with gorgeous goldwork embroidery. It utilized smooth and checked bouillion (also known as bullion or purl, in England) as well as a unique woven gold passing thread which I’ve never seen before. It was fairly thick compared to the modern passing threads available today, measuring nearly 2mm."
