This listing is for 1 skein (10m) of Cottage Garden Threads 100% cotton 6 stranded thread in colour: 2104 Orchid
Beautiful Cottage garden variegated threads are designed for surface work, embroidery and stitchery projects. These threads are fabulous quality and wonderful to stitch with.
Cottage Garden Threads are hand-dyed in Australia by Pam Spurway. Her variegated palette is inspired by the natural beauty of the rural landscape of Australia. The variegation is designed with a short colour length of 2 to 3 inches especially for embroidery to enable a good variation of colour in smaller lengths of stitching.
Cottage Garden Threads are carefully hand over-dyed in small lots to ensure a quality product, therefore the dyeing processes and techniques are more labour intensive to ensure a beautiful quality stitchery thread.
The small batch process also means that the thread is treated gently, has a sheen finish, a low knotting rate and excellent strength handling properties at the end of the process.
Like any hand dyed thread, Cottage Garden Threads can not be guaranteed 100% colour fast... however these threads are processed very carefully to avoid colour loss and if cared for correctly, will have a 97 - 100% dye fastness. They meet standards for Australian Industry certified colour and light fast.
Dye lots may vary so send me a message for a custom listing if you require more than 1 skein sufficient to complete your project.
Each skein is pre-cut to 50cm lengths to a total of 10 metres (20 lengths) and the skeins come beautifully packaged with full care instructions. To see a little video on how to use the packaging, click here.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKIkLQbYgK0
