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.
Each pack contains 10 skeins, each 50m long.
Thread is a similar thickness to a Perle12 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!
We sell beautiful and useful things for makers. Our products are sourced with care and consideration for those who make them and we work with smaller companies and individuals whose sourcing and manufacturing process are transparent.
We hope to be an inclusive company and strive to create an environment that is welcoming and embraces diversity, both with our online presence, the makers we represent, our physical pop-ups events and our collaborations.
We welcome suggestions about how we can improve our approach.
