The CARON Collection includes eight different thread lines, some with well over 200 different color combinations. The variegated threads, and their companion solid color threads, have become favorites of designers around the world. The hand dyed variegated threads come in two different weights of cotton (Watercolours and Wildflowers); and in Waterlilies, a 12 ply silk, and Impressions, a 50% wool, 50% silk. The colors coordinate across all four lines.
Impressions, now a staple of most needlepoint shops especially, also comes in over 200 solid colors. Each range has from three to seven shades so just the right color is always available for the project at hand. Soie Cristale, solid colors in the identical silk as Waterlilies, comes in the same colors as Impressions.
Among the specialty threads imported by the CARON collection are Snow, a soft synthetic metallic, available in several colors; Antica, a heavier, chainette construction metallic; Rachel, a tubular nylon, and Rachelette, which is Rachel hand threaded with a fine metallic.
