2 skeins of perle cotton thread size 8 hand dyed with indigo.
Each skein is approx. 25 metres.
Two pretty skeins of a light indigo. The threads were originally unbleached cotton so the colour is a soft blue tending towards grey contrasting with an off-white. One skein is mainly blue whereas the other one is mainly cream with hints of blue.
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.
