Queen City Dye Company six stranded Overdyed Floss. Each skein is approximately 8 yards. I use natural products, coffee, tea, blueberries, beets, grapes, cabbage, spinach etc to make my dyes. I use DMC as my base. All flosses are rinsed until clear but I cannot guarantee their colorfastness. Because the process is done by hand, each skein is unique. For the creative needle worker who doesn't like to color by the numbers.
