Cotton Embroidery

Sullivans Floss is made from long staple cotton and double mercerized for a brilliant sheen. The premium thread is made up of six size 25 separated strands. Sullivans Floss is so highly recommended because you have control over the thickness of the thread by choosing the number of strands. Whether you’re cross-stitching, embroidering, needlepoint or smocking, Sullivans Floss is the answer.

There are different ways to split your Sullivans Floss. One way and definitely not the only way is to first cut your thread to the length you need. Grip the thread between your fingers and thumb while leaving a bit of room above the gripping point. If you pat the top of the thread, they will start to separate from each other. You then can grab one strand and pull it away from the bunch. Repeat if you’re looking to thin out your thread more. Sullivans Floss is available now at our store.
