Painters Pearl 5 Cotton
$8.50 ($7.73) / 25 metre skein
$10.20 ($9.27) / 30 metre spool
Heavily twisted thread from long staple, mercerised cotton. The sheen comes from the chemical process called mercerising and is enhanced by the heavy twist. Please re-twist once in a while while you work with this thread, this keeps the beadlike structure and the sheen. 25 metres per skein.

We are moving to 30 metre spools for the pearl 5s. Current choices on spools here.
