Boxes contain mercerised cotton thread (equivalent to DMC 80) in 12 cocoons each weighing 5 grams and approx. 110 metres long and approximately 2.5 x 2 cm. To make it simple to use the thread is pulled from the centre. Each assortment box contains a collection of either variegated or plain colours.
