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 classic colors of Rochefort embroidery floss assortment are presented in a lovely workshop box with: 4001 (white/black), 4003 (pink/brown), 4004 (blue/white), 4005 (white/red), 4014 (red/black), 4015 (beige/brown), 4016 (yellow/brown), 4017 (grey/black), 4023 (green/beige), 4024 (black/white), 4025 (jade/black) and 4027 (blue/black).
