3042 Light Antique Violet– DMC #5 Perle Cotton Skein
With a reputation as the most beautiful thread in the world, this luminous cotton thread is highly mercerized, non-divisible, and on a twisted skein. It's soft and silky and ideal for cross-stitch, embroidery, needlepoint, hardanger, blackwork, redwork, punch needle, pulled thread, smocking, applique, and other types of creative stitchery.
DMC Coton Perlé, Pearl Cotton, or Perle Cotton is named for its twist, which can resemble tiny strung pearls. It comes in four sizes - the thickest is #3, next is #5, then #8, and finally #12. #5 is roughly equivalent to the full 6 strands of embroidery floss, and the colour numbers transfer between floss and Coton Perlé.
Ideal for lower-count fabrics in counted work, Hardanger Kloster blocks, and surface embroidery.
