These gorgeous threads are hand dyed in the UK by Zoe Acketts of Paint Box Threads. Zoe uses her artist's eye to individually mix each dye and create beautiful palettes of seductive colours, from the vibrant to the muted. 

The mercerised cotton can be used for hand or machine embroidery. The hand-dying process adds a subtle variation to the colour which will add that special something to your textile projects. 

Try out the threads with these smaller skeins available in three colour selections.  Each contains 20m each of 5 colours, so they are idea for smaller projects.

Available in bright, regency or pastels colourways.

Thread is a similar thickness to a Perle 12 or one and a half of DMC 6 Stranded. Can be used singly or doubled. 

Please note that we are unable to represent colours with 100% accuracy on the screen but rest assured these threads combinations look even better in real life!

Lovely thread

I have several Paint Box threads these are gorgeous to stitch with and glide smoothly through fabric. The colours are lovely and just subtly different from other threads like DMC … well that’s my excuse for indulging !
