Dinky Dyes uses a DMC base for all their stranded cotton and pearl (perle) threads on which they create these wonderfully unique colours. Each pearl cotton skein is approximately 16.4 yards in length. As Dinky Dyes are hand dyed, dye lots will vary. Every effort is made to ensure consistency in floss colours but inevitably, there will be some subtle differences. We encourage you to buy enough threads at once to ensure they are from the same dyelot to complete your project. The image shows overdyed thread colors, but colors may vary depending on dye lots or your computer or monitor settings.
