So here is where I am after two days of stitching and all I can say is “When did DMC floss become such garbage?”
When the 1996 color change happened I dumped most of my DMC floss and switched to Anchor or when I could afford it I used silk. This means that most of my WIPs are Anchor or silk. However, I was feeling lazy and didn’t feel like doing the conversion for a single band of a Teresa Wentzler border so I pulled out some of the new DMC I’ve been picking up on sale and went out and bought 3 skeins for colors I didn’t have.
So in just 4 hours of stitching this stuff has tangled, untwisted, separated and just been plain nasty to work with. All I can think is has the quality slipped or was it always this nasty? If this is the norm for DMC then I’ll be staying with Anchor and anyone interested in buying a full set of DMC floss from me can leave a message.
