Large box containing the complete collection of the six Calais cocoon assortments : 72 cocoons (n°6100, white, and n°6180, black, are found here twice).
The Calais Cocoon are coloured threads for lace-making, which is also an excellent sewing thread. It 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.
On the inside of the lid, a large label indicates the numbers and the names of the colours.
Size of the box : 30 cm long - 16 cm wide - 2 cm high.
This box is also available empty.
Our Calais cocoons are also available in boxes of twelve per colour or individually.
A printed Calais cocoons colour chart is available.
