The Retors du Nord cotton embroidery thread is twisted from four separable strands and can be used as any other embroidery thread. It is, however, slightly finer than DMC's stranded cotton. BUT - it is also slightly shinier and slides better.
Really nice quality! And makes a lovely gift - for yourself or someone else ;-) x
