DMC Stranded Cotton 522

Comprised of 6 easily separated strands, this thread allows you to modify the effects of your stitched project, depending on the number of strands used. It is made from the best long-staple cotton in the world, and is mercerized twice to give it exceptional sheen. The highly resistant dyes are carefully selected to ensure that the thread does not fade as a result of washing or exposure to light (colourfast).

Care Instructions:
Follow the washing instructions for the fabric used, except for the Light Effects Floss and the Metallic Pearl, which should be washed at a temperature of 30 Degrees. If possible, use a mild soap or special detergent for colours. Wrap the embroidery in a towel to soak up excess water and then dry flat. Place on a clean cloth and iron on the reverse side while still damp, setting the iron at the temperature recommended for the fabric.
