If you are wondering how thick our silk threads are and you are looking for a comparison compared to the likes of DMC's Cotton thread for example, please see below for the closest thread thickness match, they are not exact matches as Cotton and silk are very different but it will give you the general idea :

DMC 6 stranded Cotton as it comes = DeVere Yarns 72 thread 

DMC split down and using 5 strands = DeVere Yarns 60 thread

DMC split down and using 3 strands = DeVere Yarns 36 thread

DMC split down and using 2 strands = DeVere Yarns 18 thread

DMC split down and using 1 strand = DeVere Yarns 12 thread

DMC split down even further into 12 fine strands = DeVere Yarns 6 thread
