Where to find Pearl Cotton!

As luck would have it, Anna Maria Horner announced today via her newsletter that her needlework collection is now available in her shop

Here's a screen shot right from Anna's needlworks page.  Each set of pearl cotton contains 9 balls, which works out to about $4.75 each.  I pay $5 each at my local yarn shop, so that sounds about right to me.

A few readers also shared online sources for pearl cotton sold single.  One reader has already done some shopping at Yarn Bazaar, who sells an impressive selection of Finca pearl cotton, size 8.  Sometimes they have a color card available, but they seem to be out of stock now. 

Another reader recommended the website of her local quilt shop, Nordic Needle.  They have a large array of DMC pearl cotton.

Hope that helps!


  1. I just made my first purchase of perle cotton online at Joanne's. It was on sale for $1.79/ball.

    It's only $2.79 now so it must be much smaller amounts than what you buy. I'm going to try hand quilting for the first time so was very happy to see you tutorial today. Thanks so much,

  2. Thanks for the heads up. I have a couple of them left and been wanting to stock up for the holidays...hahaha yes it's only July but it takes me FOREVER to make anything...arg

  3. Great tip. Love Anna Maria's colors!
    I'm so glad hand embroidery is making a comeback.

  4. Anna's colors our gorgeous! Did you see the new Visiting Artists page as well? So many cute things in there!!!

    I actually picked up a box of DMC and pearl cotton floss at a tag sale a friend had last year with (no kidding) thousands of strands! I think I'm set for life!

  5. The best perle cotton I have ever used is Valdani Perle Cotton from Valdani Threads...

    It usually runs about $4.25 a ball. I love the range of colors and the weight and twist of the thread is just lovely for hand quilting.

  6. I am carrying the Anna Maria Pearl Cottons and Floss at Pink Castle Fabrics!
