So having Googled this question, here’s our advice per Ellen March:
I assume 1 strand of 12 wt. Cotton Petites (which equals 2 strands of floss) and a size 28 needle.
This is also a good tutorial that actually features Sulky: https://peacockandfig.com/2018/08/sulky-thread-embroidery-cross-stitch/
Here’s another reference: Generally, 11 to 18 count aida fabrics get 2 strands regular embroidery floss stitched over 1 hole or 1 fabric thread. 25-36 count linens and evenweaves are two strands stitched over 2 threads or wholes.
It seems to be a personal preference thing. If you want your stitching to be thick/pronounced, you’d go with one strand of 12 wt over 2 threads/holes. If you want it less dense, you’d go with 1 strand of 30 wt. over one or 2 holes. The 12 wt. comes in 50-yard Petites spools. The 30 wt. only comes in 500-yd. spools, which might help you make your decisions.
