IN COMMEMORATION OF 270 YEARS OF PROVIDING STITCHERS AND MAKERS WITH THE FINEST TEXTILES IN THE WORLD, DMC HAS CREATED THE GOLDEN SKEIN. THIS UNIQUE 24-CARAT GOLD-WASHED SKEIN PAYS REVERENCE TO THE BRILLIANCE OF EXCEPTIONAL HANDWORK.
The precious composition does not allow machine tension for the construction.
A unique artisanal system for manual production was designed and handmade.
Such a system cannot be found anywhere in the world.
From thread wrapping to labeling, production of one skein takes 2 minutes.
The thread is blocked with traditional sealing wax, made in France by a century old producer.
The sealing wax is laid down on the thread entirely manually.
This exclusive and limited edition Golden Skein was designed as a Collector's Item but can be used to enhance heirloom pieces as it has the same flexibility as regular DMC Stranded Cotton as it has a core of cotton which is wound in silver than bathed in 24 carat gold.
