2 skeins of hand dyed size 8 eygptian perle cotton.
Each skein is approx. 25 metres (27.5 yards)
These two skeins are lovely and bright. One of them is mainly a mixture of light greens in various hues and the other skein is a blend of lemon yellows and lime green.
I think they would be beautiful in an embroidery.
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.
