The whole caboodle...(and some floss hopping)
Recently I bought a whole set of Anchor embroidery floss (150 skeins I think) on Ebay. I normally buy DMC floss but it was a bargain and true to my Dutch nature -we Dutch love bargains- I couldn't resist such a huge lot of floss! Anyway the whole lot arrived around Christmas and I had not looked at it until this afternoon.
To me it seems like the Anchor colours are generally brighter if you look at the whole range yet less shiny than the DMC flosses. Or is it just me? I just pulled these 4 skeins, admittingly not the best examples of the brightness of the lot, out of the huge heap of floss. I'm trying to decide on a colour for my little 'N is for Narwhal' embroidery. I'm also very curious about the Cosmo/Lecien embroidery flosses but I'm pretty sure I will not find a bargain on Ebay for those... What floss brand do you use? Are you a floss hopper or faithful to one brand?
