Thistle Purple 6-yards, 12-stranded Silk Floss by Gloriana
These threads are GORGEOUS! They're gently variegated, so they'll give your needlework an old look. This is a stranded floss, similar to DMC, but there are 12 strands. So, you get a lot of thread in a skein. Use them just as you would any other floss, although you may want to play with how many ply you use, depending on the count of fabric you're working on.
