Hand Over-Dyed Floss, Sold in 5 yard Skeins. The colors are variegated enough to be noticeable, yet subtle enough to blend naturally. Because it is pliable, this fiber is perfect for cross stitch and needlepoint on many different counts of fabric and canvas. It is also works great for punch needle (1, 3 and 6 strand) and stitching on wool applique and penny rugs. It gives a more subtle appearance to the fine stitching on applique than some of the heavier fibers like pearl cotton.

from United States on 08/24/2015 - The best cotten 6 ply floss I've been stitching for 57 years YIKES!!!! and Weeks has been my cotton floss of choice for the last 5 years. I love the colors and the names are spot on. They have a lovely feel and shine. Last winter I bought every color they make from 123Stitch and now I'm already ordering replacements for the colors that I have used up. Thank you for your fast delivery and great prices.
from United States on 10/20/2014 - Dark The color variations were so dark that you did not see the effects that I was looking for in variations.
These pearl cottons are 100% hand over-dyed cotton. These fibers are perfect for needlepoint and can be used on different mesh canvas. The #5 draws some attention to the stitches on an appliqued piece, without taking away from the overall design. 10 yard skeins.
