This wonderful thread is 100% cotton, matte (so, no sheen), single strand (equal to ~2 strands of embroidery floss) thread. Each card contains a whopping 40 yards. The thread itself has a lovely subtle linen-like texture to it. This thread is made in the USA but reminiscent of Danish Flower Thread. Wonderful for many needlework and mending projects.
From the company: "Dyed to match the colors our great-great-grandmothers would have made, Ginnie Thompson Flower Thread provides a unique tie with the past. It's thickness and texture resemble a very high-quality homespun needlework fiber."
**note on the color name** Ginnie Thompson has this thread listed as "flesh" but since that name would refer to only one, specific color of flesh, I am changing it here.
