Have you stitched with Milan yet?

Earlier this summer, we introduced a new single-strand thread to the Planet Earth Fiber family. Composed of 50% merino wool and 50% silk, Milan exudes a glossy, lustrous sheen and feels incredibly soft.

Available in 30-yard skeins, you can expect Milan to cover approximately 21-square inches on 13 mesh when using the basketweave stitch. However, Milan is suitable for both 13 and 18 count mesh. 

Milan is available in 240 colors that cover a wide spectrum of hues, from delicate pastels to vivid brights, bold neons, elegant neutrals, and radiant jewel tones. Finding the perfect color of Milan is an easy—and enjoyable!—experience.

The mixture of silk and wool means Milan glides effortlessly through canvas and creates truly beautiful stitchwork. Charmed by Needlepoint used Milan in White, Sugar Plum, Shaved Ice, Shoot, Whipped Butter, and Lady Slipper to fill in the background of the canvas below. Notice the gleam?
