Iris is a medium weight 2 ply thread which comes with 16 yards (15 meters) per skein. Excellent for all types of needlework and available in all colors. This is my favorite thread for leaves; other uses – Cross Stitch, satin stitch, Surface embroidery and Huck/Swedish weaving. I enjoy making Tea Towels, Iris is a nice weight – it has a nice sheen on the cotton towels in contrast with the cotton threads that are most commonly used. Use milliner #5 needle.
