DMC Pearl Cotton is a highly mercerized, non-divisible, lustrous 100% cotton thread on a twisted skein and available in two sizes - 3 and 5 (the higher the thread size, the finer/thinner the thread). The twist of the thread is how it received its “Pearl” description; during the manufacturing process, the thread is combed, singed by flame and then double mercerized. It is this double mercerizing which gives it its beautiful pearlized sheen. The thread is soft, silky, does not fluff or kink, and 100% colorfast. Pearl Cotton is a supple thread that provides wonderful volume and dimension to your needlework. It is ideal to use for cross-stitch, embroidery, needlepoint, hardanger, blackwork, redwork, pulled thread, smocking, applique and many types of creative stitchery.
Size 5 Pearl Cotton works well on 18 count mono canvas.
Each package contains one 27.3yd skein of #5 thread.
Available in a vast variety of colors: each sold separately.
