7 skeins of hand dyed size 8 eygptian perle cotton.
One skein is approx. 25 metres.( approx 27.5 yards) In total 175 metres (191.5 yards)
This is a lovely, bright and cheerful collection of the seven colours of the rainbow. As the skeins have been hand dyed there are subtle variations of tone within each skein.
You can have a look at the process of how they were dyed in a series of photos in my updates for September.
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.
