"I love how much easier it is to use DMC Perle cotton than floss. There is much less knotting. It is necessary to dampen floss to smooth and straighten, whereas Perle cotton is ready for use off the ball. Love it!"

"Good quality thread. Love the many color choices.. Nicely wound balls of thread. Herrschners is my go to choice for thread."

"I bought 8 of these balls. They'll be used for some hand quilting I'll be doing. The threads were in perfect condition, the colors were exactly what I expected and the order arrived in about 5 days. I'll buy from Herrschners again."

"I ordered 5 different colors to use in a beading project. Only 2 of the colors I ordered really matched. It is tough to see what the true colors are on a computer. I liked the size of the cotton balls. I would order from here again."
