Sulky 12 wt. Cotton is one strand on a spool (300 yards) that can be used on the machine and is loved by handwork enthusiasts (no tangling). One strand is equal to 2 strands of floss. There are 130 solid colors and 126 Blendables in that line. A lighter wt. Cotton is our 30 wt. (500 yards), and it is equal to 1 strand of floss. Same colors are available in that line.
The 12 wt. Cotton Petites are 50-yard spools at a wonderful price point and are particular attractive for handwork. All 130 solid colors are available in Petites and 30 of the 126 Blendables are available in this smaller put-up.
