These are full sheen, mercerized 6 ply cotton embroidery floss skeins. These can be uses as is or separated into fewer strands as is common in embroidery.
The skeins in this Scrumptious Small Special Skeins section are limited editions of particularly wonderful yarn types. These skeins are wound and dyed in small batches and are meant to be used when a you want a pop of color, sheen, or texture in any fiber piece.
I envision them used as extravagantly wonderful threads to add contrast in outlining stripes in a warp. Or scattered whimsically throughout warp and weft of an otherwise quiet piece of fabric. Or used as flourishes in Saori weaving. Or in making colorful Dorset buttons. Or lovely additions to tapestry weaving. Or…maybe you can give us more suggestions!
This yarn is colorfast in normal use. Do not bleach or use in prolonged sunlight. I boil it and rinse a minimum of 4 or 5 times, but there might still be a little color in your water the first time you wash them. When combining warps that include dark colors with other colors, wash in color water with color catcher the first time. I do not suggest mixing these yarns with white or very light colors. Please look over them carefully when you get them. If they will not work for you, please return them in their original condition for a refund or exchange.
Shipping will be added at check out. An additional 5% of product price will be added to orders sent to countries other than the USA. (Minimum of $5) This can be avoided if you have an address in the US to which your warps can be shipped.
