3 skeins of perle cotton thread size 5 hand dyed with indigo. Each skein is approx. 25 metres.
A lovely collection of mid blues. The lightest skein drifts into pale blues but there is no white, another skein is an indigo mid blue and the third skein has almost a hint of teal to it.
Dyeing with indigo is a magical process, watching the green thread changing to blue as it comes out of the vat and into the air.
I pay great care to finishing and rinsing to bring you a product which is colour fast when washed at 30 degrees centigrade. I actually rinse all of these threads at a much hotter temperature and I personally wash many of my quilts in a washing machine at 40 degrees centigrade.
I love using hand dyed threads and I hope you will enjoy them too.
