Group 17 includes Sullivans Floss numbers 45162 through 45171. Sullivans Embroidery Floss is a premium quality thread. Six-Strand Embroidery Floss featuring 100% long-staple Egyptian Cotton with a unique RelaxTwist™ manufacturing process. It has been enhanced and perfected to top quality. A double-mercerizing process adds tensile strength and also gives it the soft sheen that stitchers love.
All 489 brilliant solid colors are 100% colorfast and fade resistant also. Available in a 8.7 yard pull skein with 6 easy-to-separate strands. Therefore you can adjust the thickness of your stitching as necessary. Each individual thread is size 25. It is convenient to use and virtually knot-free and tangle-free. To separate the strands, take your skein and find the tail that sticks out. Pull the tail out from the skein slowly until you have about 18″ length of floss and cut it off. If you would like to separate the thread into individual strands, pull one strand up and out slowly until it is fully separate from the others.
