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 16 perle cotton has approximately 156 yards of thread. This thread is thicker than hand quilting thread. It is showy without being a show-off and it pulls through cotton fabric well. It is also a good weight to use with wool when you want the stitches to be less prominent.

Don't forget to order needles—I recommend either the #7 Tulip Embroidery needle, #9 Hemming Sharp or the the #9 Bohin Crewel.

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.
