"DMC Tapestry Wool is a soft smooth non-divisible 100% wool yarn. This type of yarn is normally worked on larger mesh canvas sizes 10 to 14. Tapestry Wools gentle twist and thickness provide excellent canvas coverage with a smooth, even texture. It is best to work with lengths of yarn no longer than 45 - 50 cm- (18-20 inches) to prevent fraying and wearing down of the yarn while stitching. DMC Tapestry Wool is available in a beautiful colourfast palette of 390 colours. Tapestry Wool also provides three of the most popular background colours available in a larger 40m (43 yard) hank for your convenience."
