DMC® Mouliné Spécial®, made from long staple Egyptian cotton and double mercerized for a brilliant sheen, is the most recommended thread in the world. This premium thread is made up of six size 25 easily separated strands, which allows you to customize the thickness of the thread by choosing the number of strands. DMC® Mouliné Spécial® is 100% colorfast and fade resistant, fits all techniques and fabrics, and the ideal choice for cross stitch.
To separate the thread's strands, take your skein and find the tail that sticks out. Pull the tail out from the skein slowly until you have a 46 cm. (18 in.) length of thread and cut it off. If you'd like to separate the thread into individual strands, pull one strand up and out slowly until it's fully separated from the others.
Care Instructions: DMC® Mouliné Spécial® can be washed frequently without fading. It can be washed at a high temperature (95° C / 203° F). Be sure to pay attention to the washing instructions on the fabric on which the thread was embroidered. We recommend washing with a mild soap. After washing, wrap your embroidery in a towel to remove excess water, then dry flat. Place your embroidery on a clean cloth, preferably while still damp, and iron on the reverse side, at the temperature setting recommended for the fabric.
