Description

This product is an 8 metre skein of cotton thread (6 strands) which has been hand-dyed in France by Les Fils à Soso.

What we love about this specific thread:

  • the subtle and stylish mix of grey and light pink which allows a stunning yet soft outcome
  • the very appropriate shades for a wedding item or a girl's birth record

As all variegated threads, this one will be great for:

  • saving time and stitching faster as you use the same thread all along
  • enlivening borders or other repetitive patterns
  • replacing the recommended thread in a monochromatic pattern
  • making each finished work really unique as even the same pattern worked by the same stitcher will never give exactly the same outcome twice when using a variegated thread
  • giving you enjoyment and surprise as you won't know exactly when beginning a project how it will look once completed

General instructions regarding variegated threads:

  • Each length of thread is made up of six strands which you will have to separate in one or two according to your chart before stitching.
  • For a better effect with variegated thread, it is strongly advised to stitch one cross after another: do complete each cross as you go along, do not work in rows of half-stitches.
  • These threads can be carefully washed with a mild detergent in cold or lukewarm water.

Les Fils à Soso has chosen to name most of her threads after evocative parts of the world which make her dream. There is a complete range of delightful colours to pick from and match with all sort of stitch project.
