This is a 100% silk twisted perle #8 thread. Very good for fine counted work. The colors are dyed to match Splendor silk floss and many other Rainbow Gallery threads. Hand washable, but test first. Each card contains 20 yards. Please refer to the Splendor Color Cards at the left. Colors are the same, but with the "E" prefix rather than "S". Not all Splendor colors are available in this item. Please use the drop down list to select the color available in Elegance, then refer to the color cards at the left to see the color. To view the color cards large, click on the image.
