We are delighted to stock beautiful Paint Box Threads.
Hand dyed cotton and silk threads available in an impressive palette of colours ranging from the rich and jewel-like to the soft and sophisticated. These artisan threads are loved by embroiderers, quilters, lacemakers, fibre artists and crafters.
All are dyed in Britain by Zoe Acketts, who lovingly mixes every single colour so that each one adds that little something special to a project.
The skeins of highly mercerised cotton thread have a beautiful sheen and a very smooth sewing quality. It is a similar thickness to Perle 12 and gives a good coverage for a ‘fine’ weight decorative thread.
The staple silk thread is a fine spun silk and matches the cotton’s smooth quality making it a joy to sew with.
While the majority of the colours are ‘plain’ they have a subtle variation along their length bringing depth and interest to any textile work.
Both the mercerised cotton and pure spun silk can also be used through a sewing machine, making them a beautiful and versatile must have for any stock cupboard.
We now also stock 100m skeins of undyed and ready to dye spun silk and mercerised cotton to create your own unique dyed thread.
