Naturally-Dyed Fine Cotton Mending Thread - November Set

Naturally-Dyed Fine Cotton Mending Thread - November Set

5,00£Τιμή

This limited-edition cotton thread set is inspired by the Cornish flora and fauna that are in abundance during the month of November.

 

An extra-fine, 2-ply thread sourced from Japan - similar to one strand of embroidery floss or sewing machine thread.  

 

This makes it ideal for repairing light-weight linen and cotton garments with some delicate embroidery, or double it up if you require a thicker thread to use with a Speedweve. 

 

It has a tight twist which won't split apart as you weave (non-divisible) and a matt finish helping you to create a natural looking darn.

 

Each colour is hand-dyed using 100% natural dyes some of which are sourced from local, seasonal plants. 

 

All the threads have beautiful tonal variations which is the beauty of hand dyeing and are fixed with a mordant which ensures they are light and colourfast. **

 

The November set reflects the warm colours of bonfires seen all around on Guy Fawkes night.

- 'snap' dyed with Logwood

- 'crackle' dyed with Acorn 

- 'pop' dyed with Indian Madder

 

The thread is presented on a Ministry of Mending card for easy storage and winding. Our cards are printed locally in Cornwall using 100% recycled card (FSC certified & chlorine-free).

 

Each card contains approximately 10 m (33 ft) of thread. 

 

*Every effort has been taken to ensure these photos are an accurate representation of the colours, but since every computer monitor and mobile device is different, we cannot guarantee the colour will be an exact match to what you see online.

 

** Please be aware over time the colour will likely fade gradually with regular washing.
