1 skein of eygptian perle cotton thread size 5 hand dyed with indigo and chamomile. Approximately 25 metres.
This skein is a soft green which reminds me of herbs. There are variations in the colour with patches of dusky yellows and pale minty greens.
My monitor has picked up on blues but the thread isn't blue, it's green.
Dyeing with indigo is a magical process, watching the thread changing from green to blue as it comes out of the vat and into the air is always a thrill.
The chamomile I use I collect from patches of waste ground around the town where I live. There's lots of it! Collecting the happy, bright yellow flowers in March and April really means spring is here and once they're dried they're like some kind of cereal covered in honey and really do look good enough to eat.
I pay great care to finishing and rinsing to bring you a product which is colour fast when washed at 30 degrees.
I love using hand dyed threads and I hope you will enjoy them too.
