1 skein of hand dyed size 12 eygptian perle cotton.
One skein is approx. 30 metres (33 yards).
This skein is an "almost rainbow"! The red right at the end came out as strong orange, so not quite all the colours of the rainbow. However it's still a lovely skein of hot and cool colours all together in one skein.
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.
