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 07/15/2019 - Best golden color ever This is the very best thread I have ever purchased. It is variegated enough to make your stitched item look like it was made many years ago, which is what I wanted. I think I might have missed reviewing the Nebby Needle's pattern Tis a very Witching night. This is a wonderful pattern. I used the Whiskey colored thread to make the moon an old gold color instead of the Shaker White color listed. I also used a mixture of the Onyx thread and DMC black 310. The Onyx looks like a faded black color and the stitched piece is just what I was hoping to achieve.

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.
