2 skeins of hand dyed size 5 eygptian perle cotton.
Each skein is approx. 25 metres.
One of these skeins is a rich plum purple which has a subtle ombre effect. The other skein is a bright mixture of cherry red which blends into scarlet with flecks of yellow and a very tiny bit of white. The use of magenta in both skeins brings them together and whilst they seem quite different I think they could be used together.
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.
