Cosmo threads are six stranded embroidery floss manufactured by Lecien in Japan. They are 100% cotton. They come in a huge range of colours, including varigated.
They are fairly new into the Australian market and so can still be a little tricky to source. Here's a few reliable sources I can recommend that are stocking the full range:
