6 stranded cotton fiber that is hand over-dyed in North Carolina. The colors are variegated enough to be noticeable, yet subtle enough to blend naturally. Perfect for cross stitch and needlepoint well as punchneedle and stitching on wool applique and penny rugs. 5 yards per skein.
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 pearl cotton.
