Using DMC tapestry wool
DMC tapestry wool is available in two put-ups for your needlework needs. An 8.7 yard pull-skein is available in an extraordinary palette of 390 colors. They even have 47 of the best background colors available in a larger 43-yard skein.
DMC tapestry wool is normally worked on larger mesh canvas sizes 10 up to 14. DMC recommends working with lengths of yarn no longer than 18-20 inches—this prevents fraying and wearing down of the yarn while stitching. For areas of the same color, particularly backgrounds, it is recommended to use skeins from the same dyelot.
