Dollfus-Mieg & Compagnie (DMC) was founded in 1746 in Mulhouse, France. An ubiquitous brand in the embroidery world today, DMC is surprisingly still manufacturing not far from its founding in France. Their 6 stranded cotton embroidery floss was revolutionary when they first launched it in 1899. Their double mercerized process results in a nice high sheen.
DMC thread is colorfast, fade resistant and made from 100% long staple Egyptian cotton.
