WEEKS DYE WORKS-Over Dyed Six Strand Embroidery Floss. A hand over-dyed six strand cotton fiber. Because it is pliable this fiber is perfect for cross stitch and needlepoint on many different counts of fabric and canvas. It also works great for punch needle (one three and six strand) and stitching on wool applique and penny rugs. The colors are variegated enough to be noticeable yet subtle enough to blend naturally. It gives a more subtle appearance to the fine stitching on applique than some of the heavier fibers like pearl cotton. All shades are hand dyed so colors within each skein do vary slightly. This is an integral dynamic of the character which hand-dyed fibers add to finished needlework. Each package contains one 5 yard skein. Available in a vast variety of colors: each sold separately. Made in USA.
