Additional Information


Create beautiful craft and needlework projects with the DMC Pearl Cotton Skeins Size 5 27Yds.

The shiny cotton thread is highly mercerized, non-divisible and twisted for that 'pearlized' effect.

  • Brand: DMC
  • Available in a rich array of colors
  • Length: 27 yards
  • Content: 100% cotton
  • Thread Size: 5
  • Care: 100% colorfast and can be washed on a frequent basis, without causing the color to fade. The thread can be washed at high temperatures 95° C/203° F. Particular attention should be paid to the fabric on which the thread was embroidered. Wash your embroidery with one teaspoon of mild soap such as Orvus. After washing, gently wring it out and rinse it as many times as necessary to get the soap out of it (until the water is clear). Use almost cold water to rinse the piece. Wrap the embroidery in a towel to remove excess water, then dry flat. Place the embroidery on a clean towel, preferably while still damp, and iron on the reverse side, at the temperature setting recommended for the fabric.

DMC Pearl Cotton Thread 27 Yds Size 5 is rated 4.076923076923077 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficult to match thread I have spent a bit of time now trying to match the DMC craft thread number (334) to the satch and name options but nothing is a match with my thread. If DMC uses the three-digit identifiers, it would be a terrific help if JoAnn's would also use these numbers instead of color names, which mean little in terms of matching to a number. There is no JoAnn store near me--Farmington, NM is the closest. I now will have to wait until we plan a trip to finish my project since I cannot use the internet to match my colors with any sense of exactness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doily Making I am new at making Doily's so ordering I thought would be intimidating. However, I love how simple it was. Not only to find the size and weight of thread I needed but I love how the recommended size needle is stated as well. The quality of the material was great. I used Ecru for my project. There are many colors available for this thread. I think my next one will be in the traditional white color. Ecru was pretty but best used on a dark wood. I have lighter wood so traditional white it will be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Needlepoint Thread Wool fiber can be destroyed by moths. Cotton embroidery thread is easy to use, but the result is better with pearl cotton 5. The moths will not eat it and the texture and appearance is superior to any other yarn I have used. Novelty yarns look good with pearl cotton.
