This lovely collection of hand dyed threads is composed of 3 skeins of perle cotton size 5.
This is a lovely group of pinks' purples and greys and all the other colours created by blending them together. One skein is a mixture of a rich, dusky purple blending to dusky pinks and hints of fuchsia. A second skein is shades of soft lilac which blend into rose and also a bluey grey. The third skein is mainly the blue grey tones of the second skein with tints of pale blue.
Be careful with the colour of the images, my monitor always makes the blue stronger than it is in reality. The threads are soft lilacs and grey blues rather than pale sky blue.
All three go together really beautifully and very elegantly.
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.
