Sampler Threads & Simply Shaker Sampler Threads


Overdyed Cotton Threads

Muted colours

Sampler Threads give new pieces an aged appearance

Colour variations per strand are very subtle

When ordering an overdyed thread, please ensure you order sufficient skeins

for the complete project as dyelots can vary considerably.

Note:  Colour fastness not guaranteed

From The Gentle Art -
"At The Gentle Art we maintain a serious commitment to the quality  of our thread.
We work diligently to produce a product which is consistent, lightfast and has heirloom quality and longevity.
As with any hand done process, there are slight variations with each dyelot and there is a margin for error.
However, we strive to minimize this.
Each skein contains many colours of the same shade blended with care
to provide incredible visual richness and give your needlework a faded, antiqued look.
We have a wide range of colours and add new colours several times a year."
