1 skein of eygptian perle cotton thread size 12 hand dyed with indigo.
One skein is approx. 30 metres.
I've had a really difficult time trying to photograph these skeins, whatever I do the photos come out a brighter blue than they are. They're a soft blue almost beginning to have a very tiny touch of grey. It's a lovely soft colour and the skein goes from a medium blue to pale blue with occasional parts of white.
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.
