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 05/25/2023 - Beautiful thread! Great thread for the shingle stitch I’m using on a roof. Variegated tones distribute very nicely. Looks like I planned it that way!
from United States on 05/06/2023 Lovely floss
from United States on 01/26/2020 Very pretty color, and the floss is nice to stitch with, but when stitched you can not see much of the variation in the color. It stitches up looking more like a solid color.
from United States on 07/10/2018 - Weeks dye works need I say more? I love Weeks it is the very best!
from United States on 02/26/2018 Its Weeks Dye Works .... AWESOME
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.
