DMC Stranded Cotton is the world's favourite embroidery thread. They use the finest long staple cotton and mercerise it twice to give your embroidery exceptional sheen. Stranded cotton contains 6 easily divisible strands allow you to vary the weight of your stitches to add depth to your project.
Colours are washable and fade resistant. Please take into account the fabric onto which you have embroidered. DMC recommends washing with a mild soap. After washing, wrap your embroidery in a towel to remove excess water, then dry flat. Place your embroidery on a clean cloth, preferably while still damp, and iron on the reverse side, at the temperature setting recommended for the fabric.
DMC's highly resistant, colourfast dyes mean your embroidery won't fade as a result of washing or exposure to light.
