"This thread is awesome!"
I love this thread so much. I first found some old stock at my local needlework shop and thought I'd never find it again. I've used it for making ornaments and most recently I embroidered a sweatshirt with Matte Cotton.
It's soft and so nice to work with. Perfect for chunky embroidery!
"Matt cotton is back"
It has been awhile since I've been on this site. For many years I used matte cotton along with Perle. I am so thrilled to see it is back. I love working with this thread.
