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.
