DMC Étoile (“star” in French) is six-stranded, hand embroidery floss with a subtle twinkle worthy of its name. Like a star, the shimmer is not overly flashy; rather, the sparkles are small and consistent throughout the thread. Composed of 73% cotton and 27% Lurex, this floss has a soft, airy texture. DMC Étoile thread is available in a good selection of 35 colors—each matching the number of their cotton floss counterpart but prefaced with a “C” (e.g. C972 is the Étoile version of the cotton 972). Put some sparkle in your craft with DMC Étoile embroidery floss!
