This is the most divine embroidery thread I’ve ever seen; it’s a bonus that it happens to be produced locally in nearby Gippsland and is plastic-free.
Variegated thread/yarn is perfect for lazy colour lovers because it surprises you with colour changes as you mend. There’s no need to coordinate a colour palette or wonder when it’s time to change colours – the thread does all the work for you.
Each skein contains 10m of hand-dyed, stranded cotton embroidery thread; images shown here are representative only of the colours and variegation you will find in each dye lot.
Can’t decide? Select one or more 'ELF's choice' skeins and I’ll pick for you.
CGT threads are precut and packaged in an innovative way; pull on the left-hand side of the skein to untwist the thread, then remove each strand one at a time as you need it.
ideal for hand stitching and darning (If darning with multiple strands, I recommend binding them together first with beeswax to prevent weaving through the wrong threads and getting lost in a darning maze)
low knotting rate
amazing colour combinations
short colour blocks give your mending more colour variation than other variegated threads
precut 50cm thread lengths are brilliant for travel (no scissors required)
thread lengths feature the same colour at both ends for continuous colour blending
Australian Textile Industry certified light- and colour-fast
This thread is made from 100% cotton, hand-dyed and packaged on recycled cardstock by mother-daughter duo Pam and Katie of Cottage Garden Threads in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. It would look sensational with Wrenbirdarts moth mending embroidery transfers.
