2 skeins of hand dyed size 5 eygptian perle cotton.
Each skein is approx. 25 metres.
These two skeins remind me of ancient tapestries with beautiful elegant, faded colours. They are a little bit more muted than the colours in the photos, softer and sophisticated. They have a lovely range of colours going from deep plum, dusky pinks, touches of lilac and soft bluey greys. Really if they don't sell I'll be happy to have them back to use myself!
The threads have been dyed by me using MX Procion dyes.
I use the threads myself to hand quilt my own quilts and thought that other quilters and embroiderers would love to use these threads too.
I've never had any problem with colour fastness. I rinse all the threads very thoroughly and I consider them colourfast when washed up to 30 degrees centigrade. On a personal note I rinse all the threads at a much hotter temperature and I wash my own quilts in the washing machine at 40 degrees.
