DMC Embroidery Floss and Perle cotton threads, available in 454 colors, which are made from the best long staple Egypitian cottons, are the result of DMC expertise and experience, thus ensuring an impeccable quality. Their double mercerization gives them an exceptional sheen and the colours used make them highly resistant to light and washing (colourfast). This is the most widely sold embroidery thread in the world. As DMC Floss (Mouline Special) is composed of 6 easily separable strands, you can use as many strands as you wish, depending on the fabric to be embroidered, or you can even mix the various colours yourself to obtain a mottled effect.
