DMC has a great range of fun, variegated embroidery threads, where the shade changes from light to dark through the skein.
A favourite amongst stitchers, DMC Mouliné stranded cotton is made of the best long staple cotton and is mercerised twice, which gives it a lovely sheen. It's made of 6 easily separable strands allowing you to vary your stitching results depending on the number of strands used. The dyes used are fade resistant and washable. Perfect!
Each skein has 8m of thread.
