Rochefort is a thick, gimped thread, which means it is made up of different strands with another thread wound tightly around the exterior.

It can be used for jewelry, a drawstring for a small pouch, a tie for a gift, a couched thread when embroidering, crochet, and many other crafts.

This thread was originally used by professional embroiderers and notably those working in haute couture. It is made of Dralon, a synthetic fiber with a wool-like aspect that does not pill. Another advantage is that it is fast-drying. This thread is called Rochefort because of its corded appearance and because the small town of Rochefort is home to the spectacular Corderie Royale, a royal factory created by Louis XIV to make the ropes needed for naval sailboats.

The 12 modern colors of Rochefort embroidery floss assortment are presented in a lovely workshop box with: 4002 (yellow/black), 4006 (madras), 4007 (tweed), 4009 (pale green/black), 4010 (chestnut), 4012 (orange/blue), 4013 (harlequin), 4018 (violet/brown), 4019 (tartan), 4020 (cuddle), 4021 (bonbon) and 4026 (turquoise/black).
