Very Velvet Petite– a 10 meter/10.94 yards skein of hand dyed petite very velvet. Hand dyed in a blend of medium to dark olive/chartreuse greens.
Very Velvet Petite is a nylon velour thread which creates the appearance of velvet. It is comparable to a size 5 perle cotton in thickness. It is strong and holds up well when stitching maintaining its shape and thickness throughout the length. Use a large needle and a short length when stitching. It adds a plush texture. Works well on needlepoint canvas (13-18 count) and cross stitch (9-10 count) and creates lovely architectural elements on painted canvases. If you happen to find any kinks in the thread, run your fingernail over the length to plump up or get a few drops of water on your fingers and run it along the length. **If you use this second method, ensure your thread is dry prior to stitching.
Very Velvet Petite is perfect for embroidery, crazy quilting, needlepoint, counted canvas, applique, sashiko, couching and it makes lovely embroidered bugs, especially BEES!
**My Very Velvet Petite is randomly dyed so please ensure you order what you require for your project. The VVP proved quite challenging to photograph so please be aware that the colours are far more vibrant than what they appear in the photographs.
I hand dye all my threads in unique, original colour combinations in small quantities to ensure vibrant colours. Colours are blended in shorter lengths enhancing any needle work project. I make every effort to ensure colour fastness with repeated rinsing, however, as with any hand dyed item this cannot be guaranteed.
