6-strand 100% cotton hand embroidery floss - 12 mixed "pastel" colours - each skein 8 metres
6 strand embroidery floss is a hand over-dyed, six strand cotton fibre.
Because it is pliable, this fiber is perfect for cross stitch and needlepoint on many different counts of fabric and canvas. It also works well for punch needle (one, three and six strand) and stitching on wool, applique and penny rugs.
The colours are variegated enough to be noticeable, yet subtle enough to blend naturally. It gives a more subtle appearance to the fine stitching on applique than some of the heavier fibers like pearl cotton. All shades are hand dyed so colours within each skein do vary slightly. This is an integral dynamic of the character which hand-dyed fibers add to finished needlework.
This comes in skeins of 8 metres
Perfect for stitched ornaments such as good-luck bracelets and handkerchiefs!
