These eight size 12 perle cotton 10 gram balls come in colors that are grayed, or 'dusty', and will work very well with grayer color palettes and fabrics.
This kit includes the following colors: Dusty Rose (1984), Pale Sky Blue (3305), Dusty Teal (4228), Dusty Celery (5229), Mauve (7944), Light Dusty Purple (8017), Dusty Purple (8026), Taupe (8327). (FYI: The Dusty Purples are taupy-purples.)
About Perle Cotton:
Prescencia Perle Cotton is 100% extra-long staple Egyptian cotton, mercerized for strength, colorfast, bleachfast* and shrinkfast.
One 10-gram ball of size 12 perle cotton has approximately 136 yards of thread. I like to use this thread to make visible stitches on cotton fabric. It is also a good weight to use with wool when you want the stitches to be less prominent.
Click here to see a video about larger needles, thicker threads, and needle threaders.
Use the chart below to compare the different weights of thread.
* All colors are Bleachfast except 1163, 1166, 3802, 3810, & 3822. These colors are Colorfast but not Bleachfast.
