  • Waterlilies
    A 12-ply hand-dyed variegated silk. Gives a subtle sheen when stitched & has particularly good light reflection qualities. Use single ply for very fine work or as many plies as necessary to suit stitch and ground fabric. Many colours match Watercolours and Wildflowers, but silk fibers take the dye differently - they may be more subdued.
    For colour cards see hand-dyed thread colour card or all colour cards.
  • Watercolours
    Watercolours is a three-ply pima cotton - a long-staple, extremely strong fiber. It is mercerized, which makes it even stronger and gives it it's characteristic sheen. Watercolours is not a pearl cotton. Pearl refers to the twist of the yarn, not the type of fiber. The three strands are cabled, but are divisible. They should be separated even if working with multiple plies so that you can control the smoothness of your stitching. Watercolours has the same versatility as Persian wool and can be used for all forms of needlework including needlepoint, cross stitch, tatting, hardanger, darning patterns, knitting, crochet, and crewel.
  • Wildflowers
    A single strand hand-dyed cotton in variegated colors. It has more of a matte finish when stitched. Use one or more strands as required by the ground fabric. One strand is approximately the same weight as flower thread or Medicis wool. It is between a #8 and #12 pearl cotton in weight. It is available in all the same colors as Watercolours and the two threads can be used very successfully together for hardanger embroidery. Can be used for bobbin work on quilts.
  • Impressions
    A 50% wool, 50% silk blend. It comes in solid colors which coordinate with Soie Cristale silk, and hand-dyed colors which coordinate with Watercolours and Waterlilies. It is about the same weight as Wildflowers, but has more loft. It is very versatile and can be used on fine linens as well as larger counts of needlepoint canvas. You can often control the look of your stitches to create either a sculptured or a satiny look simply by adding or subtracting one strand. The blend of wool and silk gives a unique appearance as the two fibers reflect light differently, giving your stitching great depth.
  • Soie Cristale

    A twelve-ply solid color spun silk.
    Use the solid colors the same as you would use Waterlilies, which is dyed on natural or white Soie Cristale.

  • Snow Metallic

    Snow is a synthetic metallic thread. It is very easy to work with and in weight is similar to #5 pearl cotton, six strands of floss or one ply of persian wool. White tends to reflect the colors used around it. Although it has lots of sparkle, decorative stitches look well worked with Snow.
