Artisanthropy carries pearl cotton, also known as perle cotton, or even coton perlé or Fil à broder, by Presencia, Valdani, DMC, VOG and Leviathan in thread weights 3, 5, 8, 12 and 16. With such a wide variety of brands to choose from, you’re certain to find the right colours and thread sizes for your next project, whether it be embroidery, needlepoint, tatting, crochet, appliqué, cross stitch, quilting, weaving, lace making, serged special edge finishes, or any number of other needle craft techniques that call for non-divisible cotton thread.

Please note, we’ve done our best to ensure the colours in our product shots as closely match the actual thread as possible, but because of colour differences between monitors, the product you receive may look slightly different than what you see on our website. In most cases, if you have the colour chart, it’s best to order from that, but where you don’t have a colour chart, just be sure you order enough of a specific thread to complete the project you’ll be using it for, then you don’t have to worry about matching other dye lots or shades.
