This lovely collection of hand dyed threads is composed of 3 skeins of perle cotton size 5.
There are two pink skeins in this collection. One is almost a bubblegum pink with a few tiny hints of yellow. The other more of a dusky pink with lots of subtle tone variations, the beauty of hand dyed threads. The third skein is a mixture of rich fuchsia and purples all beautifully blending together.
Each skein of perle cotton size 5 is approx. 25 metres / 27.5 yards in length.
I have hand dyed each skein using MX procion dyes.
I pay great attention to the after dyeing process to ensure that these threads are colour fast and wash fast. I recommend washing them in cool water. However I do wash all my own quilts,which have been quilted with similar threads, at 40 degrees centigrade.
I love using hand dyed threads in my own creative work and I hope you will enjoy them too.
