Cotton floche is a luxurious soft cotton embroidery thread with a beautiful sheen, used for fine embroidery, smocking, heirloom sewing, monogramming, cross stitch, and needlepoint.

In stitched weight, floche is approximately equivalent to 1.5 single strands of DMC stranded cotton.

The Floche Color Collections include all the currently available shades of floche. If you collect all the available collections here on Needle 'n Thread, you will have the entire range of cotton floche.

While the colors in some collections may look the same, there are only 3 colors that are repeated once across all the collections. The nuances in shades of colors contribute to floche's versatility for different embroidery techniques.
