The thread maker’s new heavier floss comes available in 6-ply floss skeins, which have been innovatively designed to be threaded directly onto a punch needle, without needing to be pre-cut or separated from the skein. Valdani has long been considered one of the pioneers in the North American punch-needling and crazy quilting communities, and they are committed to creating a thread that allows handicraft artisans and sewists to create their perfect project with ease.

Valdani has also launched their heavy 6-strand floss skeins in over 300 new colors, including both solid and variegated shades. These shades can be bought separately on their website in ten-yard measures, or in sample pack style collections that highlight different color palettes.
As with the other cotton threads they manufacture, Valdani’s 6-ply floss has been crafted with 100% long-staple organic Egyptian perle cotton. As they spin all their threads by hand in their boutique Canadian factory, they also hand-dye their threads and flosses.
This means that each one of their solid and variegated colors is completely colorfast, and guaranteed to keep its rich depth and subtle nuances for as long as the project it has been stitched into lasts.
As Barbie pink fever takes over the world this month, Valdani is also showcasing their selection of distinctive solid pink 6-ply floss hues, including their slightly less pastel and more punchy Baby Pink, their vivid and bright Electric Pink, and their soft and nostalgic Dusty Rose. Also new are their variegated summer-inspired Strawberry Cream and Raspberry flosses.
In addition to their 6-strand floss skeins, Valdani continues to retail their popular 3-strand floss balls, which can also be threaded directly onto a punch needle and used without pre-cutting. Valdani’s 3-ply floss can also be easily separated into separate strands for sewists and craft artisans who want to create finer and more delicate looks.
Valdani’s full collection can be found online and in popular sewing and crafting stores across North America.
A spokesperson for the popular sewing thread makers said, “Our 6-strand floss skeins come in over 300 beautiful hand-dyed variegated and hand-dyed solid colors and showcase subtle shades and unique multicolors. We believe they offer a rich palette for all punch-needlers, crazy quilters, cross-stitchers and thread-embellishment enthusiasts.”
