Hand dyed cotton thread / floss (6 strands) for cross stitch or embroidery. One skein is approximately 10m long. This is a listing for one skein of Light Olive (202). Other shades are available to buy from our Etsy shop.
It has been hand dyed using natural dye extracts. Although care has been taken to fix colour using mordants, washing is not recommended due to the nature of cotton fibre and use of natural dyes. The colour may also fade over time.
Please note that although we have tried our best to photograph the item, the colour may vary from what you see on your screen. For comparison please note that the second picture shows shades 202, 203, 204, 205 and 206. Other shades are listed separately.
Grab yourself a bargain, or be it a gift for a friend, this should give a few hours of joy to any stitchaholic.
