I've certainly always found them to be so, even with the reds (the first 
piece I used them in featured a shiny red apple -- I was nervous, but it held 
beautifully).  Lovely to work with, too.  They're not perfect for Opus 
Anglicanum, but they're a durn sight better than stranded cottons

Just back from Maryland Sheep & Wool  Festival, with a lovely lapful of 
silk/wool yarn to make gloves
