DMC Floss is the most recommended and widely distributed thread in the world. Colours are 100% colourfast and fade resistant.

Each length of floss is composed of six individual strands, allowing you to adjust the thickness of your stitching by using a different number of strands. To separate the strands, take your skein of DMC Floss and find the tail that sticks out. Slowly pull the tail out from the skein until you have an 18” length of floss and cut it off. To separate the floss into individual strands, pull one strand up and out slowly until it is completely separated from the remaining strands. Continue to pull out the number of strands you’ll need to stitch with. To rejoin the threads, hold them together at one end then gently stroke the lengths to smooth and recombine them.
