Colour Variations are a blend of soft multi-colours that flow seamlessly into one another. The subtle colour changes in Colour Variations reveal themselves every few stitches. The skeins are six-strand and 8 metres just like the regular cottons, and there are 36 different colours. Each skein of Colour Variations is a combination of current DMC colours, allowing you to coordinate Colour Variations with DMC Cotton Embroidery Floss to create beautiful designs with colours that compliment one another perfectly. Colour Variations provide the look of hand-dyed floss but are 100% colour-fast, fade resistant, and are guaranteed to have colour consistency from one skein to another.
