Anchor Embroidery Floss is spun from the world's finest 100% Egyptian cotton. Anchor offers you the largest selection of solids in the industry - 460 rich, lustrous shades that are completely washable and offer outstanding colorfastness.
A 12-ply, 100% silk hand-dyed floss. Good light reflection. Dyed in many of the same colours as Watercolours and Wildflowers, the colours may be more subdued as silk takes the dyes differently than cotton.
Lustrous 100% cotton thread with a pearlized sheen. Lovely to work with. Great for cross stitch on heavier fabrics and for needlepoint, canvaswork, hand appliqué, and surface embroidery. #5 is the second-heaviest of DMC's Coton Perlé (pearl cotton or perle cotton).
Kreinik #8 Braid is about twice the thickness of Size 4 Braid – great for heavier coverage in cross stitch (on coarser materials) or light coverage on 18 mesh canvas. Adds a lovely glitz to your work! Also great for embellishing, crazy quilting, and couching.
The “gold standard” of embroidery floss (along with Anchor), DMC floss is made of 100% Egyptian long-staple cotton in France. 6 easily dividable size 25 plies. Available in 454 solid colors. 8 metre pull skein.
Gently shaded to simulate a vintage or antique look to stitching. Colourfast, hand-dyed 6 strand embroidery floss with gentle shading. Sampler threads tend to have more variation in thread colour than the Simply Shaker threads
