A hand over-dyed 6-strand cotton fibre. Because it is pliable, this fibre is perfect for 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 applique and penny rugs. The colours are variegated enough to be noticeable, yet subtle enough to blend naturally. It gives a more subtle appearance to the fine stitching on applique than some of the heavier fibres like pearl cotton. All shades are hand-dyed, so colours within each skein do vary slightly. This is an integral dynamic of the character which hand-dyed fibres add to finished needlework. Each package contains (1) 5-yard skein. Available in a vast variety of colours, each sold separately. Made in USA.
