silk buttonhole twist
I have a question for those of you who have worked with silk buttonhole twist. I'm thinking of using it on a project. How thick is it, say compared to six strands of embroidery floss? Thanks much!

Well, the buttonhole twist is quite a bit thinner. I'd guess about the equivalent of maybe three strands of 6-strand embroidery floss? Here's a comparison picture for you (white silk buttonhole twist, pink 6-strand floss):
