DMC Pearl Cotton is a highly mercerized, non-divisible, lustrous 100% cotton thread.
During the manufacturing process, the thread is combed, singed by flame and then double mercerized. It is this double mercerizing which gives it its beautiful pearlised sheen.
The thread is soft, silky, does not fluff or kink, and 100% colorfast.
Pearl Cotton is a supple thread that provides wonderful volume and dimension to your embroidery.
Care & Washing:
DMC Pearl Cotton is 100% colorfast and can be washed on a frequent basis, without causing the color to fade. The thread can be washed at high temperatures (95° C/203° F). Particular attention should be paid to the fabric on which the thread was embroidered.
Wash your embroidery with one teaspoon of mild soap such as Orvus, Soak or Softly. After washing, gently wring it out and rinse it as many times as necessary to get the soap out of it (until the water is clear). Use almost cold water to rinse the piece. Wrap the embroidery in a towel to remove excess water, then dry flat. Place the embroidery on a clean towel, preferably while still damp, and iron on the reverse side, at the temperature setting recommended for the fabric.
How to Use:
DMC Pearl Cotton Balls can be used for many embroidery projects. When using Pearl Cotton for crochet it is important to match the proper crochet hook to the size thread you are using. DMC recommends steel crochet hook sizes for the different sizes of Pearl Cotton Balls:
