I decided to start selling DMC variegated floss. I love variegated floss – the color combinations especially in the 24 new colors offered by DMC are just lovely. I think my favorite must be 4245 – Mystical Midnight (fifth from right in the photo).
Getting your mitts on the DMC variegated flosses, however, can be tough. Among the big retailers, brick and mortar M*s doesn’t carry variegated floss, and online H*s has them at a reasonable price, but the shipping is expensive considering the weight of the floss. There’s also C*F*L*, which has a good price but we have to buy a box of six at a time, and the shipping again is a bit pricey for the weight. Don’t get me wrong – I understand their shipping charges are based on the dollar value of what your purchase, rather than the actual weight of the items. This makes perfect sense for a big retailer with literally millions of products. However, it’s hard to justify paying $10.00 for shipping 4 skeins of floss. So I think I’ll give it a shot (and with reasonable shipping rates to boot)! Today I listed all 24 newer colors of DMC variegated floss on my Etsy shop. If someone wants a variegated floss that I don’t have listed in my store, just contact me and we’ll make arrangements.
