Pearl cottons are 100% hand over-dyed cotton. Perfect for needlepoint as well as a variety of other techniques including blackwork, huck embroidery, tatting, quilt knotting and more. Size 5 is the most commonly used because it draws attention to the stitches on an applique piece without taking away from the overall design. This package contains 10 yards of size 5 pearl cotton. Comes in a variety of colors. Each sold separately. Made in USA.
