Presencia Perle Cotton #16 – Dark Red (1915)
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.
