Rust-dyed Threads

Rust-dyeing is fun, if a little tricky for threads. The results are astoundingly permanent and the process is pretty safe and not-bad-for-the-planet
Fibres include Cotton, Silk, Linen, Wool, Bamboo and Mixtures in a variety of weights and textures
All threads have been hot-washed as part of the dyeing process and are fully ready-to-use.
Suitable for hand sewing or machine couching in patchwork, embroidery, or other crafts.
These threads are all Hand-dyed with real rusty metal and hand wound by me and each pack is different.
Skein lengths vary from around 3 metres for very chunky threads, to 20 metres of fine cotton.

Packs of 5 skeins; £6.50 including UK postage
