One skein 25 meters /27.3 yards. Painters Threads (parent company Tentakulum) dyes primarily threads but other items too including linen, trims and more. The thread appears to be unmercerized meaning there is no “polish” finish to it like DMC perle cotton. Because of its tighter twist it isn’t as matte as Caron Watercolors. This is one of the most organic threads because there is no repeat in the skein such that there is in most all hand dyed or overdyed threads. The dye lots vary tremendously so it is best purchased to enhance your stash used when its just the perfect thread. If using for a specific project where you want real consistency you will want to purchase all at one time. Please contact shop for multiple skeins of single dye lot. Please note the tags are not marked with dye lots.
