1 skein of hand dyed size 8 eygptian perle cotton.
One skein is approx. 25 metres.
A lovely bright sunflower yellow with patches of strong orange which blend to create areas of softer orange tones. Very cheerful, happy thread. The skeins are actually brighter than they've come out on my screen.
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.
