"I've been trying various threads as crocheted necklace "cords" that hold single pendants. This is by far the best. It's silky, the color is rich, and it's easy to work. I wish it came in balls of greater yardages, but for now, this is fine. I'll purchase more in the future; I'm eager to see how it looks as crocheted edging for linens."

"This thread is easy to work with, smooth, shiny, and soft. I use it for temari balls and for weaving small projects."

"Pearl Cotton used for doily I was very pleased with the DMC Pearl Cotton balls I recently purchased, in a range of grey tones for making a tatted doily that will sit on a black table. Not done yet but the effect of the sequential colors is just what I wanted"
