This listing is for thread only, not a finished item.
This listing is for a 50 yard (45 meters) skein of size 20 cotton thread. The thread will come in skein form.
This thread is hand dyed by me in a pet and smoke free home. The color scheme is called "Hydrangea Bush." The color repeat of this thread is approximately 43".
THE PROCESS: I start with Lizbeth thread. Lizbeth thread is a 6-cord cordonnet of 100% Egyptian cotton. Each strand consists of 3 sets of 2 threads, each pair twisted, then all twisted together in the opposite direction. The thread is super combed, gas-singed, and mercerized, making it very strong and durable. That makes this thread perfect for making wearables and heirloom pieces.
I hand paint the thread with Procion MX dyes, which are very light and colorfast. It is then washed with a professional detergent to remove inactive dyes. I then rinse the thread again. That means you can start a project with the thread without washing it first. And you can hand or machine wash the finished piece without worry.
This thread is great for tatting or crocheting.
Because the thread is hand dyed, colors may vary from skein to skein, even in the same dye lot.
