Four different collections of soft smooth plied thread which works well on cotton and linen, and beautifully on wool. I have dyed these sets to offer you lots of variation. As well as three acid-dyed sets there is a gradient set of indigo threads to enjoy. The slight shade variations in these provide further interest in your stitching.

Brights - summer at the seaside!

Old Rose - soft dusky pinks and a gentle grey

Marine - two blues and two close sea greens, ideal for subtle shading

The blend of Blue Faced Leicester wool and silk offers the best of all worlds. Good coverage and a soft sheen to your stitches.

Length: 24 metres each skein (96 in total)

Content: 55% BFL 45% Silk

Thickness: plied thread - about equivalent to using three out of the six plies of a standard embroidery floss

wool silk thread*****Posted by Maura T on April 9 2024 at 22:47I got a skein of this thread in one of my subscription boxes and had to get some more , it had a lovely feel to it . It slid nicely through the cloth I was embroidering . it had a lovely sheen and I found it didnt snag . The subtle variegation means that you dont have to keep changing thread when you want a nice gradation ie in flower petals or stalks and leaves. I used it to stitch strips of sari ribbon onto a loosely woven calico to make an imaginative landscape type picture.It will eventually become a little drawstring pouch.

Essential staff team-of-two meeting slotted in to this morning’s schedule…

Excellent coffee at @hot.toddy.edinburgh
Tour prep takes many forms…
I may have to opt for bigger luggage this time 😳

Saturday still life with stitches
The slow slow development of a new kit.
Because I’m worth it!
I do plan to share, though
We kept hens for years and years but left our wee flock with the new owners when we moved house nearly five years ago. We miss their burbling chatter.
Today I bought a box from a roadside ‘shop’ close to home and was delighted at these lovelies when I opened it up 🤗
