As you can see, this floss is available in a rainbow of colors.

The easiest analogy for me to describe this beautiful product is :

Cosmo floss compares to DMC floss,

as Aurifil thread compares to dime store thread. 

Cosmo is made from top quality Egyptian cotton fibres, for a silky, smooth, nearly tangle-free result.  The floss smoothly unrolls from the skeins, the strands neatly separate, and stitching with it is sheer pleasure.

We currently stock the entire collection of the 6 strand skeins (click here).  This past Friday, we placed an order for the full range of the marbled (or variegated) floss, and can’t wait for it to arrive.  There were over 50 beautiful colors.

This morning, I did a quick google search about the floss, and found that in addition to Brenda Riddle (Acorn Quilt & Gift Company),  designers from Crabapple Hill, Bunny Hill Designs, and Moda (Joanna Figueroa and Edyta Sitar) are all recommending the product and using it in their quilt & stitching patterns.   I’m sure there are more, but these names were the easiest for me to identify.
