Complete Retors du Nord Embroidery Thread Collection -- 96 Colors
A great opportunity to treat yourself to the complete 96 colors of our Retors du Nord embroidery thread!! It’s in stock and ready to ship.
The Retors du Nord cotton embroidery thread comes in four separable strands and can be used as any other embroidery thread. By comparison, It is slightly finer than DMC's stranded cotton. It is also slightly shinier and slides better.
The box of thread also comes with a large pattern chart which will enable you to embroider a marvelous vintage-style color chart — work of art worthy of its place in the home of all embroiderers!
The box is entirely covered inside and out with one of our blue papers. The cover is decorated with a large round Retors du Nord label. Inside is a label with numbers and names of the thread colors.
Size of box: 29.5 cm long - 21 cm wide - 7.5 cm high.
For ecological reasons, Retors du Nord embroidery floss is not colorfast. To make a thread colorfast involves using highly-polluting treatments, which are in our opinion, totally unjustified for embroidery purposes. However, it can be washed up to 104°F/ 40°C -- just be careful never to use boiling water or bleach.
