Silk 'n Colors is a 100% silk thread. It is a 12-ply thread meaning you can use from 1 up to 12 strands at a time. It initially wants to separate into three groups of 4 strands. If you 'flower' or 'fluff' up the end, you will more easily see the initial separation. For cross stitch we recommend using 2-ply on 28 count, 1 ply on 32 count or higher. All other applications may require you to do a test sample to determine the correct ply for your project. Always purchase sufficient of one dye lot to compete your project. Skeins are 5 yards. Due to differences in computer monitors the colors on your screen can only be considered a guideline to actual colors.
