DMC Cordonette Special is a line of high quality crochet cotton made by DMC in France. This thread is a highly mercerized 100% cotton thread, made of 6 glossy non-divisible strands. In addition to crochet, it is also excellent for tatting, pulled thread, openwork lace work, and more.
All sizes are put up in a 20 gram ball. This thread only comes in white (blanc, not B5200) and ecru. Please specify size and color when you order.
Comparing to the same size Cebelia, the threads is a slightly rounder and smoother since it is made up of 6 strands instead of 3, making it more suitable for tatting where the threads glides around each other. For crochet, they are fairly comparable. Cebelia is also more economical as they come in larger balls of 50 grams, in the sizes that overlap between the two.
Pearl cotton is designed for stitching instead of crochet. If used for crochet, it is best used for items that does not have a lot of wear and tear, such as for dolls. Cordonett Special or Cebelia is much more suitable for tablecloth, handkerchief edgings, etc.
