Includes 4 different types of Painters threads. One Silk Soie perlee, one YLI shimmer ribbon (11 yards) 4 mm silk ribbon and one Perle cotton #8. Products are hand dyed in Germany. There is no regular repeat of color change making for a very organic appearance. Loved by so many of my walk in customers. Threads are not marked with dye lots; and dye lots can vary greatly.
