Reputed to be the most beautiful thread in the world, DMC Pearl Cotton adds depth to your embroidery. This non-divisible luminous cotton thread is highly mercerized for an intense sheen and its soft and silky texture is ideal for all needlecraft, embroidery and creative stitching. Sold as a twisted skein.

The higher the thread size, the finer/thinner the thread.

DMC Pearl Cotton is 100% colorfast and can be washed at temperatures up to 95° C without fading. However, please take into account the care instructions for the fabric onto which you have embroidered. We recommend using a mild soap. After washing, wrap your embroidery in a towel to remove excess water, then dry flat. Place your embroidery on a clean cloth, preferably while still damp, and iron on the reverse side at the temperature setting recommended for your fabric.
