It’s made of the best cotton quality fibers and follows a very demanding manufacturing process implying double mercerizing. All the colors have conversion to DMC and Anchor numbers.

This is the only embroidery thread made in Portugal and is inspired by the need of preserving the secular traditions of Portuguese Embroidery. One of the most important and special Limol's clients are Portuguese regional embroiderers, once pearl cotton size 8 is used in Regional Traditional Portuguese Embroideries like Viana do Castelo and Guimarães.
