Hans, if I'm reading this correctly you are simultaneously wrapping the wire and embroidery thread. Is there a benefit to this rather than just over-wrapping the wire?

Rob,

Correct on simultaneously wrapping yarn and wire.

Both techniques have their place. It would be quite tricky (read: impossible) to replicate the effect you see in the image above by over-wrapping a body with wire.
