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 11/29/2018 - The Best Floss Around I have started a piece that calls for mostly Weeks Dye Works floss, I love it! The color variation is great, making everything look more natural. Also, this floss doesnt have a tendency to knot like DMC does.
from United States on 11/06/2018 - Spectacular Weeks Dye Works thread makes for a spectacular color which provides depth to the design. My new favorite thread! Thanks 123stitch for providing other options in thread that I had no idea existed!
from United States on 10/09/2018 - Wonderful! If you need an heirloom quality black floss, use this!
from United States on 09/22/2017 - Wonderful Thread First time I've ever worked with these threads lovely black, fills in better than DMC, and lays much flatter. Using DMC next to it is impossible - DMC looks bulky and wonky while this looks beautiful. Doesn't tangle, very rarely knots - when it does, it's always easy to undo. Won me over!
from United States on 06/15/2017 - Is black...black? So many black threads vying

from United States on 11/04/2015 - Great floss! Why use this instead of using the less expensive black, DMC 310? Because I find that it fills tge fabric squares much better and makes a black silhouette stand up for itself against a colored fabric!
