Six stranded hand dyed floss in 5 yard skeins. Hand dyed in the USA with an environmentally friendly process. Most colors are colorfast to industry standards according to the manufacturer. From the company:
This hand over-dyed, 6-stranded Egyptian cotton fiber was Weeks Dye Works' initial product line. It was introduced into the cross stitch and embroidery market in 1994, and remains our largest line with the most colors available. The colors are variegated enough to be noticeable, yet subtle enough to blend naturally.
Because it is pliable, this fiber is perfect for surface embroidery, cross-stitch and needlepoint on many different counts of fabric and canvas. It also works great for punch needle (1-, 3- and 6-strand) and stitching on wool appliqué and penny rugs. It gives a more nuanced appearance to the fine stitching on appliqué when compared to the heavier fibers, like perle cotton.
We aim to keep ALL colors stocked but occasionally sell out of popular colors
