Calais lace thread assortment n°6 - 12 variegated tones box - Fil Au Chinois
This thread is made of 3 strands of twisted mercerised cotton (the equivalent of DMC n° 80). The presentation in small cocoons each weighing 5 grammes (approx. 110 metres) makes it simple to use: the thread is pulled from the centre, so it doesn't knot. Each cocoon is labelled.
This assortment in a charming box, contains a collection of bright tones: lemon (6940), absinthe (6941), pear drop (6942), autumn (6943), raspberry ripple (6944), pansy (6945), blackcurrant (6946), ocean (6947), tropical (6948), hay (6949), cappucino (6950) and cuddle (6951).
Our Calais cocoons are also available in boxes of twelve per colour or individually.
A printed Calais cocoons colour chart is available.
Check out the large box containing the complete collection, as well as the empty box to keep them tidy. Embroider with Calais cocoons! Slightly finer than two strands of Retors du Nord, the Calais cocoons give great results, especially in the variegated and shaded tones. If you use these threads, it is important to use whole cross stitches to get the best results.
