I told you shopping on-line was too easy! These fibers arrived yesterday from Nordic Needle. Most of them are DMC #5 pearl, but several are Anchor brand (they were on sale!). The three skeins on the right are variegated; the middle one has a metallic thread running through it too. I got all excited when I saw that.
The three spools are linen thread in the same weight. That will give a very different texture on a temari ball. I hope the thread is not too rough, it looks like it might shred the wrapping on a mari. I only got 3 spools because I don't know how they will stitch up. I will have to experiment.
Did I mention that I love floss?
