If you have never used our silk threads before and would like to know in thickness how they compare to a DMC stranded cotton thread to help you select an advent calendar please use the list below for the closest silk thread comparison: This list is a guide only as obviously they are completely different fibres.
DMC 6 stranded Cotton as it comes = DeVere Yarns 72 thread
DMC split down and using 5 strands = DeVere Yarns 60 thread
DMC split down and using 3 strands = DeVere Yarns 36 thread
DMC split down and using 2 strands = DeVere Yarns 18 thread
DMC split down and using 1 strand = DeVere Yarns 12 thread
DMC split down even further into 12 fine strands = DeVere Yarns 6 thread
Please note: If you are ordering after the 20th of November from outside of the UK we cannot guarantee that your advent calendar will arrive before the 1st December - On the bright side, you get to play catch up and open more than one each day :)
