Item details

This is a listing for one skein, hand dyed thread. This is a colourway of very soft violet-mauve going from darker to the lighter tones. This is a very popular colourway looking great tatted just by itself or you can consider purchasing another color from our offer to pair with for a great tatting project with two shuttles.

The thread is exceptionally smooth and easy to work with, durable, doubly mercerized, lustrous 100% Egyptian cotton, twisted, 6-cord with outstanding body. I start with only the very best thread available, usually not on offer at your local craft store. All skeins are one length of thread without any burs and knots. The twist in the thread is fine, strong and well balanced ensuring very minimal twisting whilst using the thread.

The Procion MX dyes I use are both very light-fast and colorfast. The thread is washed and rinsed very thoroughly after dyeing process to remove any inactivated dye in order to prevent any color-bleeding. Items made with this thread can be washed in cold or warm water (hand or machine), but not bleached. They can be air or machine dried at low temperatures and you could iron the items on low to medium setting.

Although these threads are normally shipped as skeins, contact me if you would wish to receive them as a center-pull ball in a small zip-lock bag pressed flat for shipping (this I do free of charge).

PLEASE NOTE: While I do my best to represent my products accurately, colors can vary between monitors.

This is a lovely thread for tatting, fine crocheting and knitting, lace-making, scrap-booking, tassel making or any other kind of fiber embellishment.

I find inspiration for my work on Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/alenaleastudio/) and run interesting Facebook page that I encourage you to like! (https://www.facebook.com/AlenaleaTatting)

Additional policies

All my threads are hand dyed in unique colour combinations in short lengths and in small batches to ensure interesting but pattern dependant colour change throughout your project. This is an individually hand painted thread. Hand dyed skeins will vary, even within the same dye batch and variations of colour or speckling are part of their charm.

More of most colorways and project-sized discounted quantities may be available upon request, just convo me. Although these threads are normally shipped as skeins, contact me if you would wish to receive them as a centre-pull ball in a small zip-lock bag pressed flat for shipping (this I do free of charge).
