Tambour embroidery with wool threads Note:"While the size 110 (the largest size in the 3-hook set that comes with the tambour handle) seemed quite large enough to handle a fine thread, it just wasn’t doing the trick. Foraging through my tambour supplies, I ferreted out a 130. It looked immense in comparison, but it did the trick. The hook size made all the difference." Also, reference to stitching in same direction making a difference in neatness and consistency.
