As part of its updated services, the company offers long-staple Egyptian cotton perle (or pearl) threads – a type of embroidery thread made from very fine Egyptian cotton. These threads are strong, lustrous, and have a high thread count, making them perfect for delicate and intricate embroidery work. They are often used in heirloom sewing and for silk ribbon embroidery.

Valdani’s perle cotton is ideal for many types of decorative stitching, such as surface embroidery, cross stitch, needlepoint, applique, and smocking. Long staple Egyptian cotton perle threads are available in sizes #5, #8, and #12. These sizes are suitable for hand sewing, depending on the desired outcome. Larger sizes, such as #5, are best for decorative stitching, while smaller sizes, such as #12, are better for small, fine details.
Over the past decade, demand for Egyptian cotton has increased by around 5-7% each year. The long staple cotton fibers are stronger and smoother than other types of cotton, making it ideal for a wide range of uses including bedding, towels, clothing, and home furnishings. Its unique properties make it more durable and resistant to pilling and shrinkage. The extra-long fibers also give it a luxurious feel and a unique sheen that is highly sought after in the fashion world.
Valdani Inc, which features a rainbow of color combinations in its line of hand-dyed variegated threads that is unmatched on the market today, offers over 300 colors – both solids and variegated – and more than 150 solids in its perle collection. All of their threads, even the solid colors, are hand-dyed, and 100% colorfast. Notably, the color numbers are coordinated across all their lines – making it easy to convert from pearl to floss or from silk to rayon.
The company’s perle is available in single colors or as part of the designer collections on offer. Available sizes include 12 (the finest), made for patterns demanding a finer thread and more definition – in embroidery, stitching, quilting, crochet, punchneedle, and heavier tatting. Sizes 8 and 5, medium-weight and heavy, are both suitable for crochet, stitching, bobbin work, and rug-hooking.
Valdani also offers a diverse range of high-quality thread products – including high-quality silks and 100% Australian Merino Virgin wool.
At the client’s request, the production can be customized to make threads in the desired color, thread weight, and spool size. Valdani has developed customized pattern collections and invites interested parties to qualify for their designer program with wholesale pricing.
