Mary Corbet and Cosmo Variegated Cotton Floss

Mary Corbet has written an article about cotton flosses that are color fast and it includes a short review of Cosmo variegated cotton floss from Japan.

I really like Cosmo's regular cotton floss.  It has a huge range of colors so you can easily find 7-11 shades of anything almost.  I am not as big a fan of their variegated because the colors don't really appeal to me but if you like the colors, this is a terrific cotton floss.  It's more expensive than DMC but it's good stuff.  Here's where I buy mine, at a local quilt shop that also carries Presencia's Finca perle cottons in size 8 and size 12.
