A beautiful and easy to use 6 strand floss. Use wherever you would a cotton floss, strand for strand. Ply up or down to suit your needs. It lays better than cotton because it is softer and yet is still quite strong. It is less costly than silk but has many silk-like properties. Its semi-matte finish doesn't overpower your other stitches. Great for French Knots, Turkey Work, tassels and twisted cords. Made in China.
