The company DMC® made and dyed for centuries the wool in its own factory in Mulhouse. Since Tapestry creation began Wool and Silk have alone been employed to do Needlepoint & Tapestries. The wool presents the advantage of the longevity; Even more today since it is mothproof and colorfast. Thanks to the possibility to add or to remove single strand thread to its needle,
A beautifully soft, crewel-type wool, ideal for various needlework applications, including needlepoint, cross-stitch and crewel embroidery. This versatile thread can be worked with a single strand for delicate stitching results. Or several strands can be combined to create a thicker yarn for use on larger count canvases in needlepoint.
