DMC Special Dentelles #80 no. 738 has been discontinued. We have located a near perfect match and are waiting for our stocks to arrive. We expect them within a fortnight.
In the meantime, we do have stock of the original thread, but will be replacing both of the Dentelles in this design as under, once those have run out.
Replace DMC Special Dentelles #80 no. 738 with Lizbeth #80 colour number 603 and DMC Special Dentelles #80 Ecru with Lizbeth #80 colour number 602.
Hazel has worked with these threads and the quality is good. They are a good substitute.
