Retors du Nord is Sajou’s embroidery floss made in France. Launching a new brand of embroidery floss in 2009 was a real challenge, at a time when people were abandoning local brands for cheaper imported products. Choosing a name for our embroidery floss was a delicate affair. The name had to reflect the product without being too complicated. As usual in this type of case, I plunged into my collection of vintage haberdashery and came up with the name "retors". In French, this is a synonym of "mouliné", a term already used by DMC, meaning twisted. As it is made in the region known as "Nord", the name became an evidence.

100% cotton Retors du Nord is made of 4 separable strands. It is slightly finer than other brands with a delightful sheen which slides with ease through your embroidery fabric. It has a lustrous appearance, quite close to silk.
In most cases, and notably for counted cross stitch, you only need two strands.

Our embroidery floss Retors du Nord is presented on cards which makes it a pleasure to use and much easier to store. The other benefit: the end of jumbled unusable balls of thread.

For ecological reasons, our Retors du Nord embroidery floss is not colourfast. To make a thread colourfast involves using highly polluting treatments, which are in our opinion, totally unjustified for embroidery purposes. However, it can be washed up to 40° - just be careful never to use boiling water or bleach.
Retors du Nord is available in 96 colours and presented on 20 metre cards, sold individually or in assortments of 12 cards presented in a gorgeous box. There is also a spectacular box containing the complete collection of 96 cards. And for much larger projects, this thread is also available on 1000 metre cones.
Also available a printed colour chart and a cross stitch kit to embroider the whole range in the spirit of yesteryear.

Bonjour, j'aime beaucoup votre fil retors du NORD mais je ne sais pas combien de brins utiliser sur du lin, selon le type de toile. Par exemple, si je brode sur du lin 11 fils, dois-je utiliser 2 un 3 brins? Et sur du lin 12 fils? 14 et 16 fils? Merci d'avance pour vos conseils et à très bientôt pour une prochaine commande! Bonjour Madame, D'une manière générale, on utilise deux brins de Retors du Nord sur les lins 12 et 14 fils, si vous brodez sur deux fils de la trame du tissu. Mais, si vous brodez sur un seul fil de la trame du tissu, ce sera plus joli d'utiliser un seul brin. Sur du lin 16 fils, le résultat sera plus joli si vous n'utilisez qu'un seul brin. Ces règles ne sont pas absolues, car cela dépend aussi du motif que vous réalisez. Le mieux est de faire quelques essais avant de vous lancer dans un grand projet.
