REMINDERS OF GENTLER TIMES IN HAND-DYED THREADS & RIBBONS
The Thread Gatherer
dyes only the finest natural fibres -
silk and silk & wool blends
Silk is one of the finest stitching fibres available
combining strength with a lustrous sheen
Fibres are hand-dyed and subtle differences occur naturally between dye lots.
Please keep this in mind when calculating how much thread to purchase for a project.
It is better to have a little excess at the completion of your project
than to come up short with crucial sections remaining.
Dye lot differences are especially visible in large areas of stitches of the same colour.
Washing of threads & ribbons IS NOT recommended.
Quality dyes are used and textile industry standards are followed
for setting the colours in the fibres,
but, if washed, colour fastness CANNOT be guaranteed.
