Includes one skein each of 5 different blues, all New colors for 2017! Pepper Pot silk is used as is, single strand and works perfectly on 18 count canvas for basket weave. Between a pearl 5 and pearl 3 but loftier and softer than a pearl cotton. A favorite among stitchers who don’t like to ply “Snip and stitch”. Each skein contains 30 yards.
