Prescencia Perle Cotton is 100% extra-long staple Egyptian cotton, mercerized for strength, colorfast, bleachfast* and shrinkfast.

One 10-gram ball of size 8 perle cotton has approximately 77 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.

Don't forget to order needles—I recommend either the #7 Tulip Embroidery needle, the #22 Tulip Chenille needle, the #7 Hemming Sharp.

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.
