As we all as being available on individual cards, we now have some lovely boxes of Sajou's Retors du Nord cotton embroidery thread in different colour collections.
We also offer the luxury full collection of 96 colours in a boxed set
This beautiful embroidery floss from Sajou is made in the north of France and 'retors' means 'twisted', hence the name.
The thread is 100% cotton and is made of 4 separable strands. There are 20m of thread on a card. It is slightly finer than other brands and has a lovely sheen which helps it glide through your fabric.
For ecological reasons, Retors du Nord thread is not 100% colourfast.
However, it can be washed up to 40° - just be careful never to use boiling water or bleach.
