Item details

1 skein of perle cotton thread size 8 hand dyed with indigo.
Approximately 25 metres in a skein.

A beautiful deep blue skein of hand dyed indigo thread. The depth of colour is achieved by dyeing the cotton multiple times. A process which requires time and patience but which is well worth it when you see the final colour.

Even though the skein was dipped several times there are still some areas which are paler and the tie at the top of the skein acted as a resist leaving a tiny space which is almost white. I think of these as happy accidents as in the end they add to the individual and unique character of the threads.

Dyeing with indigo is a magical process, watching the thread changing from green to blue as it comes out of the vat and into the air is always a thrill.

I'm lucky to live on the coast of southern Spain on what is called La Costa Tropical. Autumn is mango time and I use the over ripe fruit to make my indigo vat. I'm still amazed by the fact that I live somewhere that grows mangos and that we have so many that we end up with over ripe ones!

I pay great care to finishing and rinsing to bring you a product which is colour fast when washed at 30 degrees.

I love using hand dyed threads and I hope you will enjoy them too.
