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 09/05/2023 Perfect with my Blackbird Desings project! Thanks to 123 Stitch!
from United States on 07/17/2023 - Thread shredding For whatever reason, I experienced a lot of thread shredding/breaking when separating strands of this particular color/lot number. All other colors were perfect

from United States on 12/03/2020 - charcoal by WDW On my monitor Charcoal appears as a light variegated green. In white light it appears as dull black variegated with dark green khaki. It is called for in the letters of Grayfriar's Sampler by Rosewood Manor, starting with the A and every third letter thereafter. It's an interesting formal contrast to the light colorful motifs elsewhere in the sampler.
from United States on 11/05/2018 - Good color If you want slight variegation this is a good substitute for 3371 or even for 310 in some projects just to make it a little more interesting. Its used for wrought iron in a project Im working on and its perfect.
from United States on 09/05/2013 Perfect it matched the thread from the kit previously purchased.
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.
