About Sublime Floss
100% Extra Long Staple Egyptian Cotton • Colorfast • Fade Resistant • Mercerized • Premium Twist
For years I dreamed of having my own line of embroidery floss! And for just as many years, we have struggled with keeping embroidery colors in stock for our custom floss palettes and project kits. Running out of one color meant not being able to offer the whole palette, or even an entire kit. We had a serious floss problem, and had to find a solution. After years of research and development, we found it.
How’s the quality?
Sublime Floss™ is extra long staple (35-36mm) Egyptian cotton. It has a nice sheen, is smooth and soft, separates easily and needs no pre-conditioning. It is a slightly finer thread, which means that any stitcher can begin working with it immediately –no separating required. But don't take my word for it. Here's a rigorous, independent review of Sublime Floss on Needle 'n Thread.
"I LOVE THIS THREAD. It divides like a dream and is super to stitch with." - Nicole Hornsby
"Besides loving the colors, I love the tightness (all while retaining it’s soft, buttery feel). This floss really holds up to prolonged stitching without getting separated, thin, or fuzzy. I love you, floss." - Happy Zombie
"The colors, the shine! It shines like satin floss! But nope! This is wonderful cotton! Stitchers are going to go nuts over this floss." - Erin Brooke McDonald
Do the colors run?
Nope. We tested reds, blacks and purples in a hot wash (although a cold wash is recommended). They didn’t bleed or fade and they maintained their sheen.
Why is a palette a good option for an embroiderer?
Even the most experienced stitchers can be intimidated by color choices. There may be thirteen pinks, twenty blues…Color coordinating takes a lot of pre-planning and trial and error. These palettes have been painstakingly selected to complement one another and lend a cohesive look to any project. Parlour for dark and rich designs, Frosting for fun and sweet projects. Easy for the newbie, fun for the veteran.
What’s up with these crazy names?
There was no way I was going to design my own range of embroidery floss and not give the colors crazy names. "Absinthe" "Fainting Couch" and "Dalmation" are just a few. Don’t miss the tiny messages on the paper bands either!
What are “Mingles”?
This is the FIRST pre-blended embroidery floss! Every skein in Mingles is made up of two solid colors combined (three ply + three ply). Previously, the only way to achieve this affect was for you to strip away the strands of floss from one skein, and re-combine them by hand (which is still fun to do). Our pre-blended floss options like “Woodgrain” (light brown / dark brown) and “Dalmation” (black / white) are the first pre-blends ever available to embroiderers!
Are the colors available individually?
Not yet, but we're working on it -and more palettes!
