DMC shade card W100 NC. A very brilliant, slightly twisted
mercerised thread, available in a variety of sizes. We like to use it instead of stranded for
a neater, non-splitting finish which isn't affected by
washing. Essential for Hardanger, blackwork, pulled work;
superb on canvas and has masses of other uses where a
defined, twisted shiny thread is required.
