Flora cotton is a thin, fainted, 1-stranded 100% cotton thread of best quality - very suitable for embroideries on several types of fabric.

The thread gives a beautiful, natural fall on the embroidery fabric. On finer qualities of fabric, flora cotton is used single-stranded - on more stout fabrics, 2 threads are used.

Flora cotton can contain surplus color from dying the yarn. Therefore it is important to wash the embroideries this way to avoid smudging:

Wash the embroidery in the mashine at 30-60° C (be aware how the fabric can be washed). Use soap without bleach. It is important that the embroidery is constantly moved, so any possible surplus color cannot "fasten". Do not soak...

After washing it gives a good result to iron the embroidery till it is dry. Iron from the back side with a piece of white cotton fabric over the embroidery. If the embroidery is dry when starting ironing it gives the best result if the white cotton fabric is moistened.
