Includes one skein each of 5 different pinks, not really mauve but more on the softer side of pinks. 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.
