This DMC cordonnet cotton is made of fine, longstaple and colorfast mercerized 100-percent combed cotton. Composed of six strands. The threads are exceptionally strong and have a beautifully glossy finish. Machine washable. After washing, gently wring it out and rinse it as many times as necessary to get the soap out of it.

Also perfect for delicate and intricate lace work and for creating exquisite borders on handkerchiefs, tablemats, collars, gloves and other clothing accessories. Available in white color.
