NEW: Perle 8 thread has just arrived, along with two new colourways: 603 pansy and 1101 apricot ice. Perle-thread photographs are coming soon; enjoy a 10% discount in the meantime. :)

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.

Choose from stranded cotton (aka embroidery floss) or perle 8 cotton.

  • Stranded: 6-stranded thread is divisible into 6 strands and can be used as a single strand or multiple strands together. CGT stranded threads are 10m pre-cut into 50cm lengths. These threads are packaged in an innovative way; pull on the left-hand side of the skein to untwist the thread, then remove each length one at a time as you need it.
  • Perle: single-stranded twisted thread with a sheen. The higher the perle number, the finer the thread. Perle 8 is equivalent to 4 strands of stranded cotton. CGT perle threads are 15m in one continuous length.

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.

NOTE: the following colours have been 'retired' and there is limited stock available:

  • 908 bush lily
  • 1105 galah
  • 1200 bluegrass
  • 1605 beetle


Features:

  • ideal for hand stitching and darning (If darning with multiple strands of stranded cotton, I recommend binding them together first with beeswax to prevent weaving through the wrong threads and getting lost in a darning maze)

  • high sheen

  • low knotting rate

  • amazing colour combinations

  • short colour blocks give your mending more colour variation than other variegated threads

  • stranded cotton's precut 50cm thread lengths are brilliant for travel (no scissors required)

  • stranded cotton 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.

Want to see how it’s done? Modern Mending the book includes 18 pages of detailed hand-stitching instructions, with photographs and illustrated diagrams.

🌴 This shop is on holiday 🏖️

Orders placed now will ship on 22 July when the shop reopens.

---

Weekly dispatch

This shop dispatches orders once a week so I can do alllll the things – including running this shop and running after two tiny tots – and enjoy my life. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.

I have a new work and childcare schedule for 2024 and am still working out the best schedule for postal dispatches; please allow approximately one week from time of purchase while I figure it all out.

Shipping carrier

I ship via Australia Post because it’s reliable, trackable and carbon-neutral

If you select Express Post at checkout, it will speed up Australia Post's delivery timeframe but won't speed up my process.

After your order has been packed, you will receive an email notification with your Australia Post tracking number, which you can use to check on the delivery status of your order.

International customers: click here for current Australia Post international delivery timeframes.

Shipping fees

I don’t offer free shipping because there is no such thing as free shipping. Someone has to pay the cost for postage.

Shipping is currently a flat rate of $12 within Australia ($17 Express Post); international shipping is calculated at checkout. Gift cards are delivered electronically and do not require shipping. 

International shipping

I ship worldwide with the exception of the UK, due to VAT regulations that came into effect on 1 January 2021. If you are in the UK you can order the UK edition of my book from your local bookshop.

Local delivery

Customers in Northcote, Thornbury and nearby suburbs (subject to capacity) can select local delivery at checkout. Local delivery is extra-slow and coincides with my pram-walking/kid-wrangling schedule, up to one week after purchase. ٩(。•́‿•̀。)۶

I choose to reuse

When shipping orders my first priority is to reuse packaging materials whenever possible – boxes, padded mailers, cardboard, paper, tissue paper, bubble wrap and egg cartons from neighbours, second-hand shops and recycling centres. I cannot guarantee the materials used to ship your order will be plastic-free for this reason.

My tags and labels are stamped by hand onto compostable paper tape or preloved cardboard packaging.

I buy recycled packaging

If I don’t have suitable second-hand packaging to use for your order, my next priority is packaging made from recycled materials. It's important to me to support Australian companies making good products from our recyclables, and to make sure that material gets a second life.

Tape

I use compostable, gummed kraft-paper tape to seal my parcels whenever possible. I have a second-hand tape wetter that I love, purchased from my local op shop. Gummed paper tape is available at most art-supply shops if you want to make the switch yourself!

Express Post orders will have official plastic "Express Post" tape added.

International orders with many items will have a plastic pocket taped to them, to accommodate additional paperwork required by customs.

Individual product packaging

Every item for sale on this website has its packaging components listed and in most cases photographed, so you can make an informed decision.

Upstream packaging

When I speak to my suppliers I specifically ask that my orders be supplied to me without plastic packaging, whenever possible, to avoid waste and single-use plastic. This isn’t always possible, but I’ll keep asking, forever.

Here's how one of my suppliers has my name recorded in its database:
