Anchor Stranded Cotton is a superior 6 strand extra-long staple 100% Egyptian cotton embroidery thread. It is double mercerised resulting in a brilliant lustre, unique softness and an intense light reflection.
Available in an impressive 444 solid shades (with a further 24 multicolour and 16 ombre shades too) each 8m skein features a “pull free” construction, allowing the perfect length to be removed from the skein without disrupting the skein itself. This construction makes Anchor Stranded Cotton particularly versatile across all types of embroidery, and it’s no wonder it’s one of the most popular embroidery threads in the world!
Ideal for a wide range of embroidery techniques, including cross stitch on various fabric counts, freestyle embroidery, canvas work and many other forms of counted thread embroidery.
