Hand dyed size #5 pearl cotton thread for needlework. 10 yard skein. Classic Colorways (formerly Crescent Colours) hand dyed pearl cotton has many of the same beautiful colors, and the same consistent dye lots as their overdyed floss (CC001). Size #5 pearl cotton is perfect for needlepoint, Hardanger embroidery, cross stitch, wool applique, and other hand embroidery. Classic Colorways hand dyed pearl cotton begins with 100% cotton DMC pearl cotton and gentle fabric dyes designed specifically for cotton. After the dye process, all fibers are carefully rinsed and dried to produce beautiful thread for needlework. Color recipes have been thoroughly tested to keep dye lot variations to a minimum, but due to weather and drying conditions, there may be slight variations between dye lots.
