Non-Metallic Hand Embroidery Threads

NATESH EMPRESS rayon floss

See these colours on Natesh shade card (laminated photocopy). Empress is a sleek, shiny, untwisted thread. It is excellent value - 300 metres going a very long way for hand embroidery. It can be used in the machine bobbin and is an excellent knitting yarn. Superb sheen.

NB: We may have odd, unrepeatable spools of old colours - it is worth asking.
