DMC cotton 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 and are suitable for embroidery or cross stitch. There are 60 colours in the range and each skein is a combination of DMC cotton colours, allowing you to coordinate beautiful designs with colours that compliment one another. 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.
