The new DMC Étoile Mouline Embroidery floss has a wonderful sparkle. DMC Etoile thread is not like the metallic floss, and its also not the regular cotton mouline embroidery floss. This is truly an innnovative embroidery floss! It is made with a mix of 73% cotton and 27% lurex polyamide and therefor a very strong fiber. This floss is very fluffy and stitches easier then the metallic mouline thread. The sparkle is more subtle, and more like a twinkle here and there, rather then the bright sparkle that comes from Metallic mouline. You can read more about the different DMC floss types on our blog.
You can use the DMC Étoile thread just like the regular DMC mouline.
It also has the same coverage, and it is very strong yarn.
Each skein is 8 meter long and comes with 6 strands which you can easily split.
You can use this floss to replace a regular mouline color in your cross stitch project. You can easily find the paring DMC mouline color. The numbers of the floss have an extra C in front of the normal stranded cotton number. So a C820 is the same marine blue as the regular DMC mouline 820, which we use frequently in our Stitch A Map projects.
