1 skein, approx.25 metres, of perle cotton size 8, hand dyed with cochineal and indigo.
This skein is a nice variagated thread going from soft grey blue through violets and pinks into a soft pink. On my monitor the colours look stronger than they are in reality. The thread is a soft colour.
I collect the cochineal myself here on the Granada coast.
Natural dyeing uses very little water in the process and my main heat source is the sun - I'm very lucky that I live in the sunny south of Spain.
I pay great care to mordanting, when necessary, and to rinsing to bring you a product which is colour fast when washed in cold or cool water, maximum 30 degrees.
I love using naturally coloured threads in my own creative work and I hope you will enjoy them too.
