You probably have realized by now I’m a thread junkie. I’ve said it before, and I freely admit it.
There are a few threads out there that I own whole sets of, mostly for the purpose of designing projects to share here on Needle ‘n Thread. (It’s much easier to design something shareable if you actually have the threads on hand!)
Floche was one of my first “whole thread set” purchases. And ever since I made that purchase, I’ve always gone to great pains to ensure that I always have a complete set on hand. I guard my floche jealously. And there’s a good reason why!
Cotton floche is a beautiful embroidery thread, perfect for monogramming, for all kinds of surface embroidery (you might like this piece, for example, all worked in floche), for folk and ethnic styles of embroidery, for cross stitch, for long and short stitch shading.
It’s wonderful to smock with. And some stitchers love it for needlepoint on higher count canvas.
Me? I love it for…. everything!
I love its softness, and its vivid colors.
I love its range of shades within colors.
I love that its easy to stitch with.
I just downright love the stuff.
If you’re not familiar with floche and want to do some reading on it, I’ve got a couple articles here on Needle ‘n Thread:
And you can find even more articles and several projects involving floche here.
I hope you give floche a try someday and love it just as much as I do!
