I have made a small test cross stitch using CXC, but I also use it for other crafts.  CXC is 100% polyester, it's lovely and soft and has a nice sheen to it.  I had heard that is has improved from a number of years ago too.  It's strands give a little more coverage than DMC too so this can be a great bonus for some counts and tent stitch.  Colour is as consistent with DMC as DMC is to itself (DMC dye batches do differ especially with some colours).  You may find your tension is a little different to cotton/DMC but you quickly adjust to it.

I will be doing my fist HAED with it.  Considering it's price it seems like a very good and viable alternative to DMC.

I just received my order of cxc today from AliExpress. I ordered two complete sets for $61. It took about 3 weeks to arrive. I compared color and texture and I am very happy! I was going to include a picture but not sure how to. The labels say 100% cotton. I used the seller Factory-Shop, I have been told you can select your colors, via a spreadsheet for large projects.

Factory-Shop is who I ordered from last time

However I plan to order from wuxiyibo the next time, little cheaper and really good reviews.

If you google aliexpress and the store name it will give you a link to the store.

I recently started using CXC thread and I absolutely LOVE it!!!!! Exact colour and number match to dmc and really soft and thick to use. Covers much better than dmc. I will be using it from now on. And so inexpensive too!!!

Yes Yes Yes!! It's it!!!
I wasn't able to save the pictures to show you, but the tags on the skeins are the same. So they say cotton, well.... I hope it's true.  
Thread number is same with DMC, and it's a good thing because so I don't need convertion.
My doubt was about quality, because many feedbacks say "good" some other say "bad": I think it will not as good as DMC of course, but the price is soooo lower....
Maybe I will try....

Blue, Thank you for your super help

Well I'm from China, cxc floss is kinda popular in the low-end cross stitch market here.
First of all, unfortunately it is not cotton thread, it‘s 100% Terylene. So it is easily tangled and roughed.
I never tried this brand, but I heard it is good considering it's low price. But you can get a whole set 447 floss at 10USD here, so I think that good is given from a very low criterion...

In China, experienced stitchers are more prefer to use the Rosace or Royal Brodeire floss if they want an inexpensive substitution of DMC floss. These floss are also cotton made and using DMC thread number.

Thank you' zhulala. I was really hoping from an opinion from China, because you can better  know the market and products. Well, if it's not cotton, I will search Rosace or  maybe I'll return to DMC,  to be sure about quality.
