A 50% wool, 50% silk blend. 36 yard skein. About the same weight as Wildflowers, but has more loft. Can be used on fine linens as well as larger counts of needlepoint canvas.
You can often control the look of your stitches to create either a sculptured or a satiny look simply by adding or subtracting one strand.
The blend of wool and silk gives a unique appearance as the two fibers reflect light differently, giving your stitching great depth.
Each Colour and Cotton cotton skein is hand dyed on a DMC base and comprised of 8 yards, packaged in individual cut-yard lengths on a hang tag. Our threads are soft, easy to work with and provide great coverage on a variety of fabrics!
COLOR VARIATION: Color swatches are representative of the general sense of each color. Color may vary by base cotton, digital monitor, etc. We make every effort to maintain consistency in our colors, but please note that dye lots over time will vary. This is natural and part of what makes hand dyed fibers so special and unique to work with!
