These Crewel Wool Embroidery Thread colors are designed to use to stitch any of Kristin Nicholas' Crewel Embroidery Designs. They can also be used to stitch any of your own designs.
This kit includes eight shades of grays, black, browns, off-white, and skintones - designed for stitching animals and people. See my other listings for other selections.
My Crewel Wool Thread comes from the United Kingdom. It is a two-ply thread designed especially for crewel embroidery. Individual skeins have approximately 27 yards. A skein of thread will go far! I use the thread both single and double - sometimes triple in the needle, depending on the amount of coverage of fabric I am looking for and the stitch I have chosen.
The thread comes packaged with a small white wrapper with one tail end hanging out. Pull on the loose end of the thread gently and cut a piece about 25" long to stitch with. Keep the wrapper on the thread so that it will stay organized.
Designed to coordinate with the brightly colored linen squares also available via Kristin Nicholas Designs.
