The Quality of Your Wool is Unsurpassed

"My students loved working with this wool in our “Mixed-media Wooly Wrapper” class! I shared that I had tried several other brands of wool fabric, but nothing retained the inks like the Valdani wool, it soaked the ink up beautifully, and held the rich colors wonderfully after heat-setting. The quality of your wool is unsurpassed with no pilling and minimal shrinkage when I washed it in preparation for our class. You can see some of my students’ work on my blog at

The girls really had a blast marbling, stenciling, and needle-felting on your awesome wool. I’m attaching a picture of my samples I used your wool in, and will be sure to send one to you, hopefully by Spring Quilt Market

Thank you again for providing us designers with such awesome products to work with! "

Fabulous Threads


I just wanted to tell you how much I like your thread. I am part of the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative ( Since the quilts are small I have been able to try many new threads and a variety of techniques. I needed a specific color of thread and I was in a hurry. I purchased a spool of your variegated rayon thread. I had never tried it before but will definitely be using it in the future. I have attached a picture which I hope will do justice to your thread. I am looking forward to trying some of your other threads.

I am currently the chairman of our local quilt guild, the Chino Valley Quilter's, and have been pleased to share my thread experiences with my guild. I also teach machine quilting classes and am looking forward to sharing new information with my students. I look forward to trying many of your other threads in the future.

Love Working with Three Strand

I have completed my first punch needle project using the Valdani 3 strand floss, and it turned out beautifully! Now I see the wonderful advantage of the continuous ball of floss and not having to separate the threads!

Thanks again,

Your Wool Was the Best!

Well I finally dyed my wool sample you gave me and I love it! I’m using this wool for my classes next year in VA and GA, and so I need to get some for my classes. I used the Tsukineko inks and your wool dyed beautifully! I tried several different samples of wools, and yours was definitely the best. Thank you so much for providing us designers with such great product!

Love Valdani Threads
I wanted to let you know I received my three packages of my "Spring from Notforgotten Farm" designer thread collections…and I LOVE them!
I am in the process of putting final touches on a few new designs, and will email you over the photos of the finished models.
I also wanted to say that I will be putting a direct link to the Valdani website on my blog sidebar, to direct folks to your website where they can place their orders :)

So very happy to be working with Valdani!

"Just wanted to take a moment and thank you for all your help.  I received the first shipment of Valdani threads and LOVE using them.  The colors just flow and look stunning!  I have already made several projects and I am putting together patterns featuring the pearl cottons. I will definitely be back to purchase more and hope to put together a Prairie Moon designer thread sometime soon.   Hope you don't mind I attached the first pattern that is just about ready to go. Thanks again it was so nice of you to take time to help me get started".

Letter to Client from Lynette Anderson
I am very happy that your ladies are excited to begin Anderson’s Farm.
The Valdani threads are very special, they are hand dyed and give a very pretty shaded effect when you embroidery with them. My concern for substituting with the solid colours from DMC or Cosmo is that your ladies may be disappointed with the result. I have attached a picture showing one of the flowers from the quilt Anderson’s Farm and you can clearly see how pretty the Valdani thread is.
Valdani have created a special collection for me, its called ‘Country Style Quilting’. The pack contains x 20 thread colours all of which are superb for my project ‘Anderson’s Farm' and also go with my newest book - Country Style Quilting or intact any of my projects - I love them. They are more expensive than the solid colours form DMC or Cosmo but they are so beautiful.(...)

LOVE your threads!!

After using your thread since 2009, I just wanted to tell you how very much I love working with your thread.  You help make my designing time such fun!!  This thread just makes everything look aged perfectly, so I rarely need to tea or coffee stain my pieces.  I always suggest using your thread in my patterns that I sell.  Thanks again so very much and keep up the great work overdying those threads!!

I am so glad that you offer your wonderful threads through US distributors.
Yes I do love your Valdani threads and have been regularly ordering them through a US distributor. I was excited to find the US distributor as it made it much more cost effective in shipping costs as well as I am able to receive the threads within just a few days since they do not have to travel through customs.  I am so glad that you offer your wonderful threads through US distributors.
Thank you again.

Valdani is awesome

This student just wrote to me: "I have some Valdani. I ordered the samplers on your website and then bought some more Valdani. I only have a few Valdani but know that I want to collect the entire collection. I'll have to buy a few spools with every paycheck until I have them all. I definately know I will be making more Stupendeous Stitching project. I'm hooked. I am working on my hand stitching now and will post when I finish. Thank you for teaching this class - I've enjoyed every minute. You are awesome...."

Valdani is a life saver, I thank you so much!

I have many designs for large wall size needlepunch & I'm so thrilled that I can now do them. Valdani is a life saver & I can enjoy my stitching once again. As well, these threads are terrific on wool felt & cross-stitch. I can't thank you enough. I am sure that there are numerous needlepunchers out there that don't know about this 3-strand floss. I sure hope that you are going to continue selling this (now that I found you) & I'm going to let all my friends know about this floss & Valdani. I thank you so much!

You are wonderful!

You are wonderful!

Thanks you so much! I stitch all my wool projects with your threads and I just love them!  Your link will help me choose and order more of your fantastic colors.

Thank you for offering an excellent product
Thank you for checking into my order.  It arrived yesterday, March 23, 2012.  Seeing the Valdani colors in my sewing studio in full spectrum light at night was exciting.  Seeing the same colors in full, bright sunshine today was even more thrilling.  Some days it is the little things that please our hearts most.
I am eager to include these new colors into the wool applique projects, garment projects, and cotton applique art pieces that I so love to do.  Thank you for offering an excellent product with which I can concentrate on the design and stitching because you have produced the right fiber that behaves while I stitch.

"I have been selling the Three-Stranded Floss with great success..."

"Valdani has designed and created the new 3-Strand Floss balls and spools, named “Three-Strand Floss®. It was introduced in early 2006. This new product was created in response to the punch needle market’s needs for designer and consumers. The was no product in our market like this before. We have extensively marketed and sold this beautiful product ever since it was introduced, as “Three-Stranded Floss”. We sell this product at Trade Shows, Festivals, to designers, in classes, magazines, books, and at our store. Customers really love this product and we sell a lot of it. All of my customers know that this thread is produced by Valdani. Many on them identify it with the company itself, calling it “the three-strand floss company”.

"I'm in Love!"

Well you were right, I do love the silks. I couldn't resist diving in and playing with them to see how they stitch and they are amazing.
This week I'll be setting about coming up with some new designs to use these colours in - they are absolutely fantastic. I was most impressed by how effortlessly they stitch up - there was no fraying, knotting or tangling to speak of and I'm excited to have found these! I'll be watching the website closely for new additions!

"Favorite Things: Valdani Hand Dyed Variegated Threads"

"I discovered Valdani Hand Dyed Threads about a year ago, when I was working on my Paisley Pavane quilt. I absolutely love them! They really are hand-dyed though I can’t imagine how they go about doing that without losing their minds. I mean, hand dyed fabric is one thing, but thread? Anyway, Valdani is a cotton thread, and it comes in two weights and a pretty large assortment of colors. Variegated thread adds such a wonderful touch to quilts, and cotton thread is so much easier to work with than rayon.The Valdani threads have very short color sections compared to other variegated threads on the market (Signature Thread’s King Tut line of variegated threads has pretty short color sections, but they are not hand-dyed). You get some wonderful dimensional effects with these threads when used for quilting. Beware: variegated threads are addicting, just like fat quarter bundles. The colors are all so pretty, you can’t stop with just one spool."

Nadine Ruggles - Designer, Teacher

" customers are loving it!"

I wanted to let you know how much I LOVE using Valdani 3-strand floss and how much my customers are loving it! I have been offering a free pattern each month on my website. I put together 12 balls of floss for the entire year and I just sold my last kit! That was 20 kits already sold at the beginning of March!
I'm very proud to say I use Valdani exclusively in all my designs. Thank you very much for such a lovely product.

"...the Valdani tension was the best."

"I was looking closely at my quilts the other day and of all the threads I used in them, the Valdani tension was the best (35wt cotton with a 40/2 poly in the bobbin). No loopies or railroad tracks and the thread didn't break once! I'm really looking forward to receiving my purchase. I'm going to have so much fun!"

"Les fils Valdani sont idéaux..."

Les fils Valdani sont idéaux pour les applications en laine ou en feutrine, pour le quilting et pour la broderie. Certains fils sont unis, d’autres changent de couleur. Toutes les couleurs de Valdani sont garanties grand teint.

Love the crochet yarns by the way, I did a video demonstrating how to double thread them through your punch needle to punch with.

"Valdani is known worldwide as the Three-Strand Floss Company"

"As a designer, I created two color lines, Vintage Hues and Muddy Monet for Valdani.In preparation for the 2005 Market, I conducted a survey of both stitchery designers and consumers to determine if there was market for 3-strand floss. Specifically: “Would designers and consumers welcome the first product change in a century?” The response was a resounding yes!
In 2006, Three Strand Floss® was introduced to the US Market. As a designer, I am responsible for 2 color collections that are part of Three Strand Floss. As a result of the introduction, Valdani is now known worldwide as the Three Strand Floss Company."

From Negative to Positive

Dear Daniela, 
Quite a while ago I took advantage of a sale you had on your large cones of cotton thread.  I purchased a large number of them because I am a longarmer and I wanted to have a variety of colors to offer my clients.  Someone called me for a follow-up, (you?). 
At the time, I was having a multitude of problems with the thread running in my Nolting Pro 24.  Breaking and shredding.  So all in all I was not, as they say, a happy camper.
So here is the update.... I decided to really take a look at what I was doing with an analytical mind.  I'm happy to report the problem was mine and the nemesis .... the"tension"... 
I felt I owed you an apology and a reversal of my former comments.  I now love the thread... it sinks in and sits up so beautifully that it has become my thread of choice.  I do apologize for the negative rating I gave it at first, which for your information, I did keep to myself .... I do not enjoy the "negative" bloggers. 
 I will be going to your web site to see the New Designer Colors! 
Apologies and Thanks,
Sew Easy To Quilt
