DMC "Broder Special" is ideal for very delicate stitches such as openwork, cutwork, scallop, tent stitch, as well as for fine motifs such as monograms and initials. It is especially suited for embroidering household linen. It's made from the finest long fiber cotton. During the manufacturing process, the cotton is combed, singed by flame and mercerised, creating its beautiful finish. The end result does not knot, kink or fluff and is soft and gentle to the touch. The thread is made up to 4 non-divisible strands.
