31- Retors du Nord 2007 - Blackcurrant
This is a high quality cotton thread, made in France. The name, literally, "Twisted Yarn from the North", is a tribute to the North region of France, the traditional home of textile and thread manufacturing. In French, the word "retors" is a synonym of "mouliné". It means that the thread is twisted to make it more solid and easy to use. The Retors du Nord comes in four separable strands and can be used as any other embroidery thread. It is, however, slightly finer than DMC's stranded cotton. It is also slightly shinier and slides better. Presented on cards which makes it pleasant to use and much easier to store. Length on each card: 20 metres in four strands.
