The Best Cross Stitch Thread for Your Project

Whether you're looking for cross stitch thread for standard needlework or an embroidery project, Fat Quarter Shop has all the colors of floss you can dream of.

Most cross stitch floss (also known as embroidery floss thread) consists of six strands. Cross stitch projects are typically stitched on a 14-count or 16-count Aida fabric and call for two strands of thread to be used – so you'll need to pull apart the floss thread and pair the strands up before you thread your needle.

Using a cross stitch pattern or a cross stitch kit, you'll get a chart showing the floss names and/or numbers. Each number corresponds to a particular color and matches up to the design in your pattern. By organizing your embroidery floss carefully before you embark on your project, you'll be able to easily identify your cross stitch thread colors without tearing your hair out. We have cross stitch storage and organization solutions designed just for this purpose.

Other Forms of Stitching That Use Needlework Thread

Some types of embroidery call for as many as six strands of cross stitch floss. Embroidery uses various stitches, each designed to create a different effect. Aside from cross stitching, other applications that use floss thread include:

  • Quilting
  • Needlepoint
  • Smocking
  • Crewel
  • Punch Embroidery
  • Appliqué

Frequently Asked Questions About Cross Stitch Thread


Whatever your current level of expertise, you likely have a question or two about cross stitch floss thread. We've tackled a few of them here, but if you need more information on needlework thread or any of the sewing products we sell, please let us know.


What's the Difference Between Embroidery Floss and Cross Stitch Floss?

There's no difference between the two, except in the number of threads you use for each form of needlework. Generally, you'll use two cross stitch threads, but for other embroidery projects, you will use up to six threads. Although it may be referred to as "embroidery silk," floss thread is usually made of cotton.


How Do You Separate Floss Thread to Cross Stitch?

Hold the cross stitch floss in one hand and separate the individual threads at the top with your other hand. Pull one thread out while gently holding on to the rest. Repeat this procedure so that you have two threads. Line up the two threads evenly, and you're ready to thread your needle and start sewing.


What Is DMC Cross Stitch Thread?

DMC Mouline Stranded Thread is the finest quality thread and the most widely used worldwide. Made of 100% Egyptian cotton, DMC cross stitch floss is mercerized to give it a lovely sheen. DMC thread comes in over 450 colors.
