Item details

3 skeins of perle cotton thread size 12 hand dyed with indigo.
Approximately 30 metres in each skein.

One skein is a nice bright pale blue with creamy white variegations.
A second has been previously dyed with weld (which we grew in West Cork, Ireland) and so has a soft light green hue.
The third skein was dyed in an exhaust bath of logwood which gave it a soft lilac colour and this has added a slight grey tint to the indigo.
The three skeins make a very pretty collection. Whilst each skein is different they blend together very well.

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.
