Care & Washing

DMC Tapestry Wool can be dry cleaned only. If necessary, press with an iron on the lowest possible heat using a clean dry ironing cloth. Do not use bleach or chlorine.


How to Use

DMC Tapestry Wool is normally worked on larger mesh canvas sizes 10 up to 14. It is best to work with lengths of yarn no longer than 18-20 inches to prevent fraying and wearing down of the yarn while stitching. For areas of the same color, particularly backgrounds, it is recommended to use skeins from the same dyelot.
