from United States on 09/15/2014 - Beautiful Floss Initially it seemed expensive, but then I realized that there are seven strands to the floss instead of the stand six strands. Has a nice rich color. One word of advice . . . the floss is very light weight, so if working under or near a fan, put it in a bag or weight it down.
Hand-dyed 3 strand pima cotton with the same versatility as Persian wool. For needlepoint use one ply on 18 count, two plies on 13 count canvas. Use one ply for cross stitch on 11-20 count fabric, or cross stitch over two threads on 18 count fabric. Quilters use for big stitch, tied quilts, crazy quilts. 10 yard skein.
Hand-dyed 12 ply spun silk. 6 yard skein. Easily divided, it fits beautifully on many fabric and canvas sizes. Four plies work well on 18 count canvas, two plies cover 18 count fabric for cross stitch. Also use two plies for cross stitch over two threads on 28 count fabric. Good for surface embellishment on quilts.
A single strand hand-dyed cotton in variegated colors. It has more of a matte finish when stitched. Use one or more strands as required by the ground fabric. One strand is approximately the same weight as flower thread or Medicis wool. It is between a #8 and #12 pearl cotton in weight. It is available in all the same colors as Watercolours and the two threads can be used very successfully together for hardanger embroidery. Can be used for bobbin work on quilts. 36 yard skein.
